In March, President Donald Trump unveiled his budget blueprint, called America First, with the goal to make America great again. His proposal includes a shift in government spending which significantly increases items like military and border-security spending and to offset these increases, he intends to cut other parts of the government. Almost every government agency will see a decrease:

  • State Department: $11 billion, or a 28.7% decrease
  • Environmental Protection Agency: $2.6 billion, or 31.4%
  • Health and Human Services (LIHEAP funding source): $12.6 billion, or 16.2% 
  • Agriculture Department: $5 billion, or 20.7%
  • Labor Department: $2.5 billion, or 20.7%
  • S. Army Corps of Engineers: $1 billion, or 16.3%
  • National Institutes of Health: $5.8 billion, or almost 20%

Here’s a look at the agencies that are helped and hurt by the proposal. (Video: Jenny Starrs/Photo: Jabin Botsford/The Washington Post)
