ICANN Launches Fiscal Year 2024 Additional Budget Request Process

17 October 2022

Today, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) launched the Fiscal Year 2024 (FY24) Additional Budget Request (ABR) Process.

The ABR Process reflects potential ICANN community activities that are not already included in the annual ICANN operating plan and budget. The ABR process helps the ICANN Board and ICANN organization (org) better understand and develop resources for present and future ICANN community needs. More information about the FY24 ABR Process can be found on this workspace.

ICANN org will host an informational webinar on Thursday, 08 December 2022, at 16:00 UTC. Please register.

ICANN org is also available for consultations through January 2023. Please contact abr@icann.org with any questions.


ICANN's mission is to help ensure a stable, secure, and unified global Internet. To reach another person on the Internet, you need to type an address – a name or a number – into your computer or other device. That address must be unique so computers know where to find each other. ICANN helps coordinate and support these unique identifiers across the world. ICANN was formed in 1998 as a nonprofit public benefit corporation with a community of participants from all over the world.
