Update to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service endangered species program FY 2021 request

This document serves as an update of CCI’s funding analysis in 2019 , where we found that the FWS receives less than half of what is needed to run the ESA as Congress intended. Last year, thanks in part to this work, Congress provided a 5.6% increase in funding for the 2020 fiscal year, which was a step in the right direction, but fell short of what is required to meet the needs of listed species.
