Under this budget, Eastern will receive 100 percent funding for FY 17, 90 percent of its funding for FY18, full Monetary Award Program funding for both FY 17 and FY18 and almost $5 million for needed capital repairs.
To meet ordinary and contingent expenses, $38,678,100 is being allocated for FY18, with a separate $8,000 being allocated to scholarship grant awards.
The $11,078,300 appropriated to the university is meant to meet operational expenses for the fiscal year ending June 30,2017.
