Protecting Vital Non-Defense Programs

May 15, 2023

by Kathy Erb

CCIH joined hundreds of organizations in writing to US Congressional leaders to urge against deep cuts in non-defense programs (often referred to as non-defense discretionary appropriations or simply “NDD”) for the next fiscal year and possibly beyond. Such cuts would be disastrous for the capacity of the federal government to serve the public, assist those in need, fuel innovation, and address national and global threats. The letter states that non-defense appropriations are a small part of the federal budget—less than one-sixth—yet they fund a wide range of important programs and services. Furthermore, NDD funding has not grown significantly. In fact, adjusted for rising costs and population growth, NDD funding is below where it was in 2010.
