CCD Fiscal Policy Statement on FY 2018 President's Budget
Washington DC, May 24, 2017 - The Fiscal Policy Task Force of the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD), a national coalition of more than 100 national disability organizations, is extremely disappointed by priorities outlined in the Fiscal Year 2018 full budget released by President Trump yesterday. Titled “A New Foundation for American Greatness,” this plan cuts over a trillion dollars from programs that support people with disabilities in the community to help pay for tax cuts for those who are already prospering.

CCD Statement Opposing 2018 Presidents Budget
Washington DC, March 16, 2017 - The Fiscal Policy Task Force of the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD), a national coalition of more than 100 national disability organizations, is alarmed by President Trump’s so-called “skinny” FY 2018 budget. While this budget does not address substantial parts of the federal budget and provides remarkably little detail, it is clear that many of the changes it proposes would have dire consequences on people with disabilities, their families, and service providers.
