Federal Budget

Budget Cutting and Our Community Listening Project

The Federal Budget and Our Community Listening project is listening to Kansas City Area Leaders to hear their thoughts about: unmet needs in our community; the impact of budget cutting on the federal and local level; and what they think should be our budget priorities and policies to create a healthy community. Find out how you can get involved and help change the storyline around budget cutting and replace it with a loud and clear demand by our community for priorites that meet our needs.
