The President’s FY 2009 Budget Proposal: Analysis and Policy Implications

Icon

Audio | February 21, 2008

Each year, on the first Monday in February, the President releases a budget proposal, which reflects the Administration's funding priorities for the next fiscal year. This jump-starts the annual federal appropriations process and our federal advocacy campaigns. The President's budget is meant to guide Congress as it decides on funding levels for all federal programs.

Presenters provided analysis of the President's budget, discussed its impact on housing and homeless programs, and shared how participants can partner with us in our federal advocacy initiatives in the coming year.
