The consequences of early childhood malnutrition are devastating and permanent, but they are also entirely preventable. RESULTS works to secure smart, sustainable investments in nutrition and nutrition policy that help break the cycle of poverty.
Searching for a good news story out of Washington in 2018? We’ve finally got one.
The White House has once again jeopardized the futures of families struggling to put food on the table, kids around the world seeking an education, and millions more people facing poverty. The administration’s Fiscal Year 2019 budget request proposes massive funding cuts to effective anti-poverty programs in the U.S. and around the world. Now the process and final decisions fall to Congress, where there is stiff opposition to much of this budget and where similar proposals failed last year.
On September 7th the Senate State and Foreign Operations (SFOPS) Appropriations committee passed the fiscal year 2018 SFOPS bill out of committee. It included some good news for our priority health programs.
With its first federal budget proposal, the White House has taken aim at families struggling to put food on the table, kids around the world seeking an education, and millions more people facing poverty. Proposing massive funding cuts to effective anti-poverty programs, the budget jeopardizes the futures of people across the country and around the world. Now Congress takes up the process.
It falls to Congress to reject dangerous White House proposal.
Guest Speakers: Sarah Saadian, Vice President of Public Policy at the National Low Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC); Shawn Baker, Chief Nutritionist at the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID)
