Details

In January 2013, a series of automatic spending cuts, or sequestration, are scheduled to take effect. It is estimated that programs serving children, youth, and families would lose $6.4 billion in Federal fiscal year 2013 alone, setting back spending on a host of programs to the lowest levels ever recorded.

When Congress returns to work after the November 2012 elections,legislators will be debating policies on how to reduce the deficit and avoidsequestration and the impending 'fiscal cliff'.These negotiationswill affect critical programs for children and families in far-reaching ways.

Join GCYF for a webinarNovember20 discussing what path Congress might take andwhat could happen in January 2013 if Congress fails to act and reach a consensus on a comprehensive budget and deficit reduction plan. Thewebinar will also reveal new and emerging data on the impacts of sequestration on vulnerable populations.
