The Coalition on Human Needs composed a letter to Congress that details the consequences of congressional inaction. According to the letter, if Congress fails to stop across-the-board cuts:
- 750,000 fewer infants, toddlers, and moms will get critical nutrition assistance.
- More than 460,000 adults and youth will lose employment and training services, including 51,000 veterans.
- 734,000 households will lose access to home heating and cooling assistance.
- 1.8 million fewer low-income schoolchildren will get reading and math help.
