HUD 101: Federal Housing, The New Administration and What We Can Do In Boston
Among the $54 billion budget cuts in the Trump Administration’s proposed budget is a loss of $6.2 billion for the department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), a 13% cut from FY2017. As the Washington Post reports, this would mean a loss of up to 200,000 subsidized housing vouchers in coming years.
Join City Mission as we explore the role HUD plays in our communities, how the new administration might affect local progress on homelessness and affordable housing, and what we can do right here in Massachusetts to ensure that everyone has a safe and affordable place to call home.
Advocates and experts will provide perspectives on the impact of federal policy on work currently being done in Massachusetts. HUD 101 will include a brief overview of the role that the department plays in providing affordable housing to Massachusetts families, how that role has developed and might continue to change with the new administration, and opportunities to get more involved.
