Food Security and Nutrition FY 2019

May 22, 2018

by Kathy Erb

CCIH’s Executive Director and Executive Director Emeritus joined other people of faith in signing a letter to U.S. Senate and House leaders to thank them for their leadership on global food security and nutrition, and to urge them to protect critical funding for these programs in the FY 2019 State and Foreign Operations appropriations bill. The letter expresses our concern about the health of vulnerable populations worldwide, and our realization that American leadership is needed now more than ever as we face an unprecedented global challenge of four potential famines, and more than 65 million displaced persons worldwide. The letter expresses our concern about the steep cuts to global food security and nutrition programs in the President’s FY 2019 budget request, specifically a severe cut to the Nutrition sub-account within the Global Health Programs of USAID.
