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.
