National Institute on Mental Health (NIMH) has retained a leadership in the federal government since the 1970s in research and dissemination in the US of advances relevant to good quality life for all citizens, including children and families. NIMH partners with stakeholders in the US and world, and its 5 year research priorities are posted on its website.

News media reporting on the USA budget as US Congress reviews Donald J. Trump's (Executive Office) submission, which was "of course" approved first with the department heads (submit a 10-20% cutback plan to me by Friday).

Now, the federal government may not believe that they should pay for afterschool programs through US Department of Education, or they may believe that the advocates will assuredly restore the cuts in the US Congress.

The Neighborhood Center and Ys are often beneficiaries of numerous funds, 27 sources reported for one main building in a small city (also today with "unknown behavioral and psychiatry") and "rotating population-based demonstrations".

US Education serves not only local schools, but what is termed higher education, and that means all the degree programs and the programs that are involved in the massive debt load carried by students who are now living at home into adulthood, sometimes without jobs. NYS Governor to the rescue with no cost to you higher education.

Good luck to all of us because usually instead of a review, the taxpayer in the end gets a property increase due to federal or state budget cuts to local schools! See, blogspot/Community and Policy Studies

Presented as success of Asian Americans in the US at the top leadership positions, leading our core United Way and Peace Corps programs throughout the world as the base for the Secretary appointments.

US Labor Work forces "involved" all fields from manufacturing and industries (e.g., defense in now as drones in hearing) to all the US professions (e.g., US Direct Support Work forces, public health and medical) "to" globally.

Now to the US Secretary of Transportation as a major sector of the US economy, US safety and security, "universal access", and US "construction" and transportation(e.g., requiring detailed "content" for modernization) industries.

Housing and Urban Development is an excellent department with an exceptional public history of community and economic development, research and scientifically-based, and value-based leadership initiatives.

What else might we wish to know about HUD? For example, its role in the new public safety and homeland security, its relationship with other departments such as commerce, banking implications of changes in "Fannie Mae", and its roles with "targeted populations" in the US, among others.

Best of luck to Ben Carson in his nomination to a department whose leadership did move to smoke-free housing and campuses, and thus are likely involved with sexual violence on campus groups in the US. Thank you Senator Elizabeth Warren.
