The federal budget season kicked off in high gear with the release of presidential priorities in March. While the federal budget is far from being finalized, the anticipated impact may be widespread across housing, transportation, health, arts, workforce, immigration, and many other areas. How will cuts impact public service, communities and nonprofits? Given that philanthropy will not be able to fill all of the gaps, what are the best strategies to help the region prepare and respond?

Join us as Northern California Grantmakers hosts two programs, one in our San Francisco office (June 9th) and one in the South Bay/Silicon Valley (June 15th), as we host experts, public officials, and community leaders who can help us make sense of what’s to come and how we can prepare.
