League-Hosted Federal Sequestration Webinar Set for Oct.10

October 2, 2012

The League will host a free webinar on Wednesday, Oct. 10 for members and League Partners to learn about federal sequestration.


This component of the federal budget act, unless averted or modified, will begin imposing across-the-board annual spending cuts to federal defense and non-defense discretionary programs beginning in January 2013. Programs scheduled for cuts under the sequester include critical sources of local government resources, such as the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnership, Citizens' Option for Public Safety (COPS) and Byrne Justice Assistance Grants.

The webinar offers an opportunity to learn the details of potential cuts and how to take action to mitigate potential losses.
