Funded at $3.060 billion in FY17 and used for a variety of community development projects ranging from streetscape projects to Meals on Wheels programs, the CDBG program would be eliminated completely by the Trump/Carson Administration.
Communities across America stand to lose $3,060,000,000 per year in funding.
Used to fund many affordable housing related activities like homeownership and rental housing development, the HOME program would be eliminated completely by the Administration.
Funded at $4.4 billion in FY17 and used to subsidize the rent of all 1.2 million families living in Public Housing, the Operating Fund will be cut by $500 million (11.3%).
Funded at $1.9415 billion in FY17 and used to fund repairs at Public Housing properties, the Capital Fund would be cut by $1.3135 billion (67.65%), reducing funds available for repairs at all 1.2 million rental units.
Funded at $20.292 billion in FY17 the Housing Choice Voucher program would be cut by $.974 billion in FY 18 to $19.3179 billion. However, FY 18 funding to renew vouchers that are already in use is only funded at $17.584 billion. Based on recently released HUD inflationary factors and an estimate of the number of new vouchers to be issued through 2017, FY 18 funding would need to be $19.88 billion to renew all existing vouchers. The FY 18 budget effectively cuts Housing Choice Voucher funding by $2.296 billion or 11.55%. This would eliminate 256,900 vouchers without significant changes to policy.
Funded at $146.2 million in FY17, the Section 811 program would be cut by $24.9 million (17.03%) according to the White House budget. The program is used to subsidize the rent of affordable housing for Persons with Disabilities across America.
