The Administration’s FY20 Budget Proposal Puts EPA’s Mission and Core Programs in Jeopardy

On Monday, March 11, 2019, the Trump Administration announced its FY20 budget proposal, once again seeking a 31% cut to EPA and putting in jeopardy the agency’s mission and core programs. For almost 50 years, the EPA has worked to protect the air, water, and land through core programs and actions that support its mission to protect human health and the environment. Without a budget that provides adequate funding, EPA cannot fully meet these obligations. Public health and the environment in which Americans live, work and enjoy this country’s vast natural resources are at risk. To help clarify all that is at stake, EPN created this 2-page overview of EPA’s core work as well as core program fact sheets.
