On March 11, 2019, the Trump Administration released its budget proposal for the 2020 fiscal year. EPA is, once again, taking one of the hardest financial hits with a proposed 31% cut to the agency’s budget. This decrease in funding virtually ensures the continued erosion of protections to human health and the environment – efforts that are essential for community well-being and long-term economic growth – which would be felt by families and communities across America. In response, EPN has created a 6-page analysis and a 19-page analysis that take an in-depth look at the proposal to provide a breakdown of funding cuts and continued staff reductions, as well as analyses of proposed FY2020 budget cuts that impact clean water, clean drinking water, state environmental programs and human health.

The Trump Administration and its current budget proposal continue to attack the EPA and the programs at the core of the agency’s mission to protect human health and the environment. As a result, EPN has created an overview and fact sheets on EPA’s core programs to provide a clear understanding of what is truly at stake.
