A Spending Bill Summary for Nonprofits: Trump Gets Warned and Threatened Cuts Don’t Materialize – Non Profit News For Nonprofit Organizations | Nonprofit Quarterly


Trump’s stated spending priority was the military, but the budget reflects only half of what he had requested at $15 billion. The $18 billion in domestic spending reductions the administration sought were not forthcoming. Some notable programs remained virtually untouched: no cuts to Planned Parenthood, the National Institutes of Health (which got a $2 billion increase instead of the $1.2 billion cut that was requested by the administration), the Legal Services Corporation, the National Endowment of the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, or the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Additionally, the proposed border wall was not funded, and the EPA retains 99 percent of its budget despite threats of a 40 percent cut.
