Congress discusses funding levels in the Fiscal Year 2020 federal budget, it is
a critical time to support strategic programs that help end homelessness and
cost of housing for middle and low-income households. In past budget deals, housing programs have often seen the
smallest increases when compared to other programs – making it a critical issue
to bring to the attention of our lawmakers. Under the draft budget that the
White House requested of Congress, the Department of Housing and Urban
Development (HUD) would lose about 11 percent of its current budget for housing
assistance that serves nearly 5 million low-income Americans a year.
