The federal budgets for 2018 and 2019 propose to drastically reduce funding for affordable housing. Simultaneously, HUD is proposing to raise rents on vulnerable tenants, impose harmful work requirements, and decrease accountability of private landlords and public housing authorities. These harmful proposals are unconscionable, misguided, and will only exacerbate the affordable housing crisis facing many local communities. These proposals fail to recognize that affordable housing is an essential component of racial and civil equality and a critical foundation for education, health, employment, social engagement, and opportunity. Join us as we discuss these federal proposals, how low-income tenants will be impacted, and what you can do to respond.
