Trump’s Budget Cuts for FY 2018

President Trump’s FY 2018 budget request – released May 23, 2017 – proposes to slash federal investments in affordable housing and other essential programs that ensure basic living standards for low income individuals and families.
If enacted, it would eliminate the National Housing Trust Fund, cause more than 250,000 families to lose their housing vouchers, and gut the public housing program, among other things. Together these draconian cuts would increase homelessness and housing poverty throughout the country.
