Also among the hardest hit are energy and environmental programs which would receive a 36 percent cut, while housing and community programs would receive a 35 percent cut." The following 22 programs would be defunded if the Trump budget were enacted:
The McGovern-Dole International Food for Education; The Rural Business and Cooperative Service;  Economic Development Administration; The Manufacturing Extension Partnership;  21st Century Community Learning Centers; GEAR UP; Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality; Advanced Research Projects Agency; The National Wildlife Refuge Fund; The Global Climate Change Initiative; NASA Office of Education; Chemical Safety Board, 
The Corporation for National and Community Service; Corporation for Public Broadcasting; Institute of Museum and Library Services; The Legal Services Corporation; The National Endowment for the Arts; The National Endowment for the Humanities;The Neighborhood Reinvestment Corporation; Denali Commission; the Delta Regional Authority and the Northern Border Regional Commission; The U.S. Trade and Development Agency; and The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.
