The New Congress and Federal Funding for Needed Services: What You Need to Know
A Webinar: Register Now
On January 22, hear from national experts Joel Friedman and Ellen Nissenbaum of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities about how and when Congress will take up its new round of critical budget decisions (hint: it’s soon!). The new Congress has a majority that favors cuts to Medicaid, SNAP/Food Stamps, and many other programs, threatening services low-income people need. Support will increase for massive tax cuts favoring the wealthy and corporations, too.
This webinar will help you understand what’s at risk and what strategies can protect vital programs. You’ll also learn about do-able steps you can take to protect services from Deborah Weinstein of the Coalition on Human Needs. The moderator is Steve Savner of the Center for Community Change. There will be time for questions, and follow-up materials will be provided to all registrants.
