Join National Skills Coalition on Wednesday, April 1 at 1 p.m. EST for a webinar on the latest developments on key education and training programs and the outlook for skills issues in the 114th Congress. During the webinar, NSC’s federal policy team will provide the latest news on key education and training legislation and bring you up to date on the president’s fiscal year (FY) 2016 budget and the House and Senate budget resolutions.
While the president’s budget proposes considerable new investments in skills, the House budget threatens to cut and consolidate federal job training programs, freeze Pell grants, and block grant the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).
