Message from the Acting Administrator
Planning for Potential Lapse in Funding

As you know, the current continuing resolution funding the government expires on March 23. While we hope it won’t be necessary, we need to once again make preparations in the event an orderly shutdown is required and are updating our contingency plans.

I share your frustration that we find ourselves here once again, but I also want to thank you for your continued hard work. You haven’t missed a beat in executing all the functions of our agency.

We will keep you posted with the latest information, and I thank you for your patience throughout this process.
