Excerpt from the site:
President Trump’s budget proposal for next year will be released on February 12. Then the Trump Administration will try to sell Congress and the public on his priorities. You need to know what’s proposed, and how it affects low- and moderate-income people and communities. Last year, the Trump budget included massive cuts to Medicaid, SNAP, housing, help for people with disabilities, education and job training, social services, and public and environmental health programs. Find out what’s the same or different, and whether they will package cuts under the theme of promoting work.
You’ll hear from federal budget expert Sharon Parrott, Senior Fellow and Senior Counselor at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, get brand new related poll findings from expert John Halpin, Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress, brief action steps from Deborah Weinstein, Executive Director of the Coalition on Human Needs, and added anti-hunger budget details from moderator Ellen Teller, Director of Government Affairs at the Food Research and Action Center. There will be time for questions.
The webinar will be recorded, and all registrants will get the recording link, slides, and follow-up information. So please register now!
