2017 Issues & Actions

July, 2017

Concern Over Steep Budget Cuts for Food Security and Nutrition
As Christians, we care deeply about the health of vulnerable people. With that in mind, CCIH signed a letter organized by the Faith-based Coalition for Global Nutrition to the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate expressing our concern about the severe funding cuts to global food security and nutrition programs in the U.S. President’s budget for Fiscal Year 2018, especially the reductions in the Nutrition sub-account with the Global Health Programs of USAID and to the Feed the Future global agriculture development initiative.

Calling for a Moral International Affairs Budget

CCIH joined 22 other faith-based organizations in signing a letter to the Senate and House Appropriations Committee calling for a moral international affairs budget for FY 2018. The letter states our belief that the international affairs budget proposed by the U.S. Administration does not reflect the moral and compassionate commitment we share as faith-based organizations.
