FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Washington, D.C. — This week, congressional negotiators released the FY23 omnibus spending package, which contains a $15 million increase in Magnet Schools Assistance Program (MSAP) funding, increasing the total program funding to $139 million for next year.
Combined with a $15 million increase last year, over the last two years, the magnet school community and its congressional champions have been able to work together to increase the size of funding for the program by over a quarter.
We expect Congress to approve the omnibus package this week.
