The Issue

NGREA funding is vital to maintaining the readiness and relevance of Army and Air National Guard equipment and weapons systems.

The Fix

The fiscal 2018 Omnibus Appropriations bill provided $1.3 billion in NGREA funding, including:

  • $429 million for the Army National Guard, which is $181.5 million more than fiscal 2017 levels
  • $429 million for the Air National Guard, which is $181.5 million more than fiscal 2017 levels
