Late last week the White House released Donald Trump’s “budget blueprint” that outlines his spending priorities and cuts for the upcoming fiscal year. Knowing that this budget blueprint could have broad implications for nonprofits across the nation, we read the 62 page document, researched the agencies to be impacted, and summarized changes that nonprofits should anticipate if the budget resembles this blueprint.
The budget blue print calls for the elimination of 9 programs, and we analyze the impact their termination will have on both grant funding for nonprofits, as well as likely increased demand from consumers who used
to access programs funded by these agencies.
Not being content with eliminating the 9 agencies that form the core of our nation’s nonprofit infrastructure, “the cuts keep coming”. For this reason, we researched every cut listed in the budget blueprint – which goes beyond just the cuts to meals on wheels we’ve already heard so much about. We outline the elimination of some funding sources (including some block grants that fund many organizations), as well as the sharp reduction of others.
