The Defense Department announced today that the Military Intelligence Program's topline budget request for fiscal year 2025 is $28.2 billion.

According to the department, this total request reflects the defense secretary’s “strategic priorities.”

This amount is $1.1 billion less than the $29.3 billion MIP budget sought in FY-24.

The MIP budget includes all projects that aim to aid the defense secretary’s intelligence and counterintelligence goals but the department never provides specifics as it covers classified programs.

The Pentagon said, however, that releasing this topline figure “does not jeopardize any classified activities within the MIP.”
