Protect the Peace Corps sticky icon

National Peace Corps Association | March 22, 2017

 

President Trump’s "skinny" budget proposal requested drastic cuts of 31 percent to the International Affairs budget, which includes the Peace Corps. While funding for the Peace Corps is not specifically referenced, it could face disproportionate cuts when the full budget is released later this spring.

NPCA's #ProtectPeaceCorps campaign is mobilizing our community to secure no less than level funding of $410 million for the Peace Corps and $60 billion for the International Affairs budget.
