Many Nonprofit Programs Hold Even or See Gains in Obama’s 2011 Budget
The $3.8-trillion federal budget that President Obama has proposed for 2011 seems to avoid major cuts in many social-service programs for people in the greatest need.
For example, the president would increase spending on Head Start and Early Head Start, which help children. Mr. Obama wants an additional $989-million for the programs in fiscal 2011 an increase of more than 13 percent, in order to continue to serve 64,000 additional children and families that are covered by the economic-stimulus law that was enacted last year.
In addition, the president would provide $2.5-billion for the emergency fund of the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program, which would help pay for increased spending on cash assistance and employment-related services, including subsidized jobs.
