Seattle Housing Authority issues statement in response to the President’s 2018 budget proposal

The 2018 budget proposal the President sent to Congress today includes a 13 percent cut – more than $6 billion – to the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). HUD is already underfunded for public housing and vouchers to help people afford rent in the private market, which form the safety net that keeps millions of veterans, seniors, children and many others in our country from homelessness. Congress must stop these budget cuts from being enacted.
