The White House was ready Sunday with state-by-state reports on the automatic budget cuts set to take effect Friday.
The numbers were compiled from federal agencies and the White House’s own budget office. The numbers reflect the impact of the cuts this year. Unless Congress acts by Friday, $85 billion in cuts are set to take effect from March-September.
As to whether states could move money around to cover shortfalls, the White House said that depends on state budget structures and the specific programs.
It did not have a list of which states or programs might have flexibility.
In Georgia, the White House said the biggest impact would be on the military.
MILITARY: About 37,000 civilians working for the military would be furloughed and lose $190 million in pay. Funding for Army and Air Force operations would be cut by $238 million.
JOBS: About 33,160 fewer people would get assistance in finding jobs as a result of the loss of $873,000.
TEACHERS AND SCHOOLS: Georgia would lose about $28.6 million in funding for primary and secondary schools. About 390 teacher and aide jobs would be at risk.
SENIORS: Funding for meals for seniors would be cut by about $1.3 million.
CHILD CARE: As many as 1,100 children would lose access to child care.
ENVIRONMENT: Georgia would lose $3.5 million to ensure clean water and air and nearly $1 million in grants for fish and wildlife protection.
HEAD START: Services would be eliminated for about 1,700 children.
VACCINES: About 4,180 fewer children would get vaccinations for measles, mumps and other illnesses because of a funding cut of $286,000.
PUBLIC HEALTH: About 2,400 fewer people would be admitted to substance abuse programs and 14,300 fewer HIV tests would be performed because of a $4 million cut in public health funding.
WORK-STUDY JOBS: About 2,490 fewer low-income students would receive financial aid and 890 fewer would get work-study jobs to help pay for college.
