FY25 Appropriations - Tell Congress to fund the fight against poverty


April 9, 2024

Editor’s Note: This article was originally published on March 15, 2024 and was most recently updated on April 9.

As RESULTS advocates, our mission is to inspire Congress to take meaningful actions to fight poverty. Annually, as Congress turns its focus to the appropriations process, we have a real opportunity to get members on the record in support of global health and development issues. 

Congress decides where our money goes. Congress sets funding levels for global programs during the appropriations process. This funding can support health, education, nutrition, and economic opportunity for families around the world.

One way we can ensure that global anti-poverty health and education programs are fully funded is by asking Congress to raise their voices on this issue with their peers through congressional “Dear Colleague” letters. We also have the opportunity to ask members of Congress to use their political power to prioritize funding for these critical anti-poverty programs. 

That’s why RESULTS’ appropriations campaign kicked off with the release of our fiscal year 2025 “Appropriations Memos.” New to this? Feel free to reach out! And you can find lots of information about the appropriations process here
