National Council of Nonprofits website   Article:  Fiscal Year 2018 Federal Budget Proposal   

"On May 23, the White House made the first full move in the multi-step annual federal budget process by releasing a $4.1 trillion budget blueprint for Fiscal Year 2018 that begins on October 1. Every President’s budget is essentially a wish-list of spending and policy priorities sent to Congress for the remaining steps – approval of a budget resolution that sets spending levels, passage of 12 appropriations bills, and enactment of a budget reconciliation bill that can address hard-to-pass measures such as health care reform and a comprehensive tax overhaul...

As with all White House budget blueprints, it begins with a ten-year scope before focusing on the next Fiscal Year. Broadly, the Trump budget proposal asserts that, if enacted by Congress, federal spending would be cut by $4.5 trillion over a decade and the deficit would go down by $5.6 trillion over that period, potentially producing a slight surplus in 2027. It assumes increasing revenues — even with cuts in tax rates — of $1 trillion. On the spending side, the blueprint calls for increasing defense spending by $500 billion and reducing nondefense discretionary spending, the bucket that funds many programs performed by nonprofits, by $1.5 trillion over the next decade. These cuts include $274 billion in cuts over 10 years to means-tested anti-poverty programs, including food stamps, student loans, and other anti-poverty programs.

Current Representative and former House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers (R-KY) told the Wall Street Journal, 'It’ll face a tough sled over here.'  According to the Washington Post, Representative Mark Meadows (R-NC), chairman of the very conservative House Freedom Caucus, said 'Meals on Wheels, even for some of us who are considered to be fiscal hawks, may be a bridge too far,' speaking of proposed cuts to nutrition programs. Finally, Senate Budget Committee Chairman Mike Enzi (R-WY) put today’s news in perspective: 'I hope that people don’t panic over the president’s — any president’s — budget. They’re just suggestions.'”

Library Journal info Docket  Article:  President Donald Trump's FY 2018 Budget Cuts Nearly All Funding for IMLS, NEA, NEH, CPB  by Gary Price  May 23, 2017

"While it’s hardly a surprise we’re nevertheless sad to report that the just released FY2018 Budget of the United submitted to Congress by President Trump eliminates nearly all funding for IMLS (Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS), National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), and Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) with the plan to completely eliminate these organizations in the future.

The few dollars that remain in the FY18 budget (in the case of IMLS, 10% of the budget) are for closing down the agency.

Remember, this is a proposed budget, Congress makes the final decisions."
