Congress, with the support of the Administration is looking to curb spending in 2011 by cutting $100 million from the Emergency Food and Shelter Program. A budget cut of this magnitude (50%) weakens the EFSP and impacts communities nationwide. In lieu of our current fiscal environment, many programs cannot avoid some level of funding cuts. Effectuating a $50 million cut would reduce spending to $150 million (the equivalent of 2008's spending) and would align with overall spending reductions called for by the new House Republican majority to limit overall spending. You can help turn back the cuts by contacting your congressmen. Call the congressional switchboard at: 202-224-3121 or visit http://thomas.loc.gov
