FEATURING SARAH MICKELSON – Donald Trump’s proposed budget cuts to the Department of Housing and Urban Development are deeply worrying public housing advocates. Draft copies of Trump’s budget obtained by the Washington Post show a possible 14% cut to the HUD budget, as well as devastating cuts to public housing repair and improvements, to the Housing Choice Voucher rental assistance program, and to programs that assist the elderly and disabled to obtain housing. There is already a major shortage of affordable housing in the US. If these proposed budget cuts go through, Trump will be simply making America Homeless Again.
