The Evolution of the Government's FY 2011 Budget

As the recently passed Fiscal Year 2011 federal budget continues to take shape, it is clear that many nutrition programs will see budget reductions.

Budget reductions include:

  • WIC: $504 million less than FY2010
  • Congressional Hunger Center including the Leland/Emerson Fellows Program and the Hunger Free Communities grants: these programs have been zeroed out
  • Commodity Supplemental Food Program: funded at $176 million, leaving six newly approved state programs – Connecticut, Hawaii, Idaho, Maryland, Massachusetts and Rhode Island – unable to begin
  • Older Americans Act nutrition programs: no increase or decrease

More information will be shared as it becomes available.
