Effects Of Federal Budget Reductions

A report by a coalition of advocacy groups highlights the impact of federal budget cuts, including those made through the process known as sequestration, on programs related to higher education, job training, scientific research, and other areas. The report, “Faces of Austerity: How Budget Cuts Have Made Us Sicker, Poorer, and Less Secure,” released by NDD United, lays out a series of examples of how individuals have been affected, including stories about college-preparation programs for disadvantaged students, medical and environmental research, infrastructure, housing, and public health.
