Cutting Money

Where to Cut

As the President looks for places to cut the federal budget, we will provide some good places to start over the next few weeks.

Over 72 grants of discretionary spending are available for family planning, the vast majority going to foreign nations. The grants range in size from $150,000 to over $80 million dollars. Most are in the $5-10 million dollar range. These grants are above and beyond the traditional family planning funds sent to the states. For example, Michigan’s $12 million dollars in family planning would not be impacted. Follow the link and type “family planning” in the basic search box to view some of the grants.
