Sequestration and Nonprofits

budget-cuts1-jpgThe sequester had visible and painful effects on the FAA, resulting in flight delays and an outcry from travelers and airlines. So Congress acted quickly to allow flexibility to the FAA to set its own budget priorities and to keep air traffic controllers on the job.

So what about other organizations feeling the effects of the sequester? Will there be fixes for programs facing budget cuts? Will there be allowances for Head Start, Meals on Wheels, food safety, medical research? The list continues. Budget cuts will soon be felt by many more. What can be done to create a sense of urgency to get this fixed?

Nonprofit Quarterly addresses the issue in this article – Sequestration Cuts Taking Their Toll.
