A brief history of the NSF Elementary Particle Physics (EPP) program will be presented. This will show current research areas being funded. In addition I will show the status of upcoming solicitations: CAREER, MRI, 2016 EPP and Accelerator Science. I will describe other EPP projects funded under the Mid-Scale program and talk about the prospects for the near-term future in this program. The current state of the new (now in the second year) Accelerator Science program in the NSF PHY division will be presented. I will talk about current funding initiatives involving computing related to the EPP program. Finally, I will discuss the status of the Major Research Equipment and Facilities Construction (MREFC) process as it relates to the LHC Phase II upgrades.
