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.
SHA's Board approved a plan to purchase up to 500 units to be added to SHA housing for people with low incomes.
Congress and the administration acted to avoid another shutdown, and instead funded the government for fiscal year 2019.
