CEF’s FY 2016 funding table (updated Feb. 6). See below.
This includes funding for most ED programs as well as related programs in HHS and IMLS from FY 2012 (pre-sequester) through the President’s FY 2016 budget. It has more details than the ED table, since it includes extensive footnotes with details from the Congressional Justifications.

Items of note:
The final FY 13 levels reflect an across-the-board cut of 0.2% from the levels set in the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act. These levels were then reduced by the 5.0% sequester cuts. The final FY 13 levels generally represent a cut of 5.23% below FY 12 (except for programs such as Head Start which received a specific pre-sequester increase in the FY 13 CR).
Under sequestration, FY 13 total discretionary funding for the Department of Education (excluding Pell grants) was at its lowest level since FY 2004.
The FY 2014 omnibus appropriations bill only partially restored the sequester cuts, leaving total discretionary funding for the Department of Education (excluding Pell grants) below the FY 2006 level.
The FY 2015 CRomnibus increased total discretionary funding for the Department of Education (excluding Pell grants) by $137 million, but that still leaves that level below FY 2006.
CEF has created a table on education and related programs funding levels in the omnibus.
It highlights the Fiscal Year 2015 Discretionary Funding for Selected Department of Education and Related Programs.

Page 1 is provided below, for an example of what you can expect in the full document.
Unless Congress acts, on March 1, 2013 all federally-funded education programs (other than Pell grants which is exempt from the first year cut) will be subject to a 5 percent automatic across-the-board cut as part of an overall $85 billion sequestration spending cut.
The last Congress enacted more than $2.5 trillion of deficit reduction. Counting interest savings, over $1.7 trillion was from discretionary spending cuts – about 70 percent – while only about $750 billion (counting interest savings) was from increased revenue.
It is critical that plans to replace the sequester utilize a balanced approach, including revenues and mandatory spending cuts, that protect education and other nondefense discretionary (NDD) programs from further spending cuts.
These sequestration cuts would chop funding for programs in the Department of Education by $2.5 billion. In addition, Head Start would be cut by $398 million. This would be the largest cut EVER to education programs. Sequestration would move us backwards, by slashing Department of Education non-Pell grant discretionary funding below the Fiscal Year (FY) 2004 level.
