How to Cope with the Massive Upcoming Trump Budget Cuts

Reality television personality Donald Trump has now released his first budget request as president. The request is for FY 2018, which starts on Oct. 1

Without a doubt this is a huge time, a potentially transformative time for grant seekers who depend even partially on federal funding. We are coming from years of stable and high funding for federal programs that are important to our listeners. In the past grant seekers could depend on federal funding for a range of programs, from early childhood education to community development. Things are much different now.

Under the Trump Fiscal Year 2018 budget, he seeks deep cuts for many of the federal funding programs that our audience depends on. Many of the programs, like the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities, have a distinguished funding track record, and help a great many people and distribute lots of money in grants.

For example, Trump proposes drastic cuts to education and child welfare services while reducing support for programs which enable low-income youths to stay in school and get on a college or career path. It would reduce the Education Dept. budget $11 billion. Student aid and other education programs for low-income students see the biggest cuts. It would also eliminate the $1.1 billion 21st Century Community Learning Centers program, which funds after-school programming.

Not all is lost. Grantseekers should keep in mind that Republicans don’t have complete control of Congress. The Senate GOP leaders will have to gain approval of at least eight Democrats to obtain approval for any of their appropriations wishes. This means popular programs from the Obama administration, such as the National Endowment for the Arts’ Our Town and Education Departments’ Promise Neighborhoods have a good chance of remaining in existence for the near future at least.

What You Will Learn:

An update on the federal appropriations process and what is happening now in Congress.
Federal Committees to watch as lawmakers start making decisions on spending for next fiscal year.
What about those departments that Trump is seeking to eliminate.
What are the hot topics that grant seekers need to keep abreast of?
Outside-the Box Opportunities at the Federal Funding Level
If federal funding withers, are there alternative state and local funding sources.
The audio conference will help attendees keep up with the fast-changing federal funding environment, make sure they don’t lose their seat at the funding table and get the federal money they need.

Your Presenter:

A nationally known speech writer/speaker, Frank Klimko produces monthly audio-conferences that provide an insider’s view to federal regulations, new billion-dollar spending projects and grant making priorities. The audio conferences have helped listeners better position themselves for funding, burnish their applications and get a firmer grip on the federal/private money stream.

Registrants will receive an email the day before the conference and again the morning of the conference. It will contain instructions on how to call in and join the conference. You will also be able to email questions during the conference. If we don’t have time for your question, you will still be emailed an answer after the conference.

Recordings: Approximately 48 hours after the conference, you will be emailed a link to download the file, in mp3 format. All registrants will also receive a recording.
