“President Donald Trump’s administration has already announced massive budget cuts to everything from the Environmental Protection Agency to the Internal Revenue Service. Now a new report indicates that the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is next on the chopping block.

The White House is reportedly considering more than $6 billion in cuts to HUD, according to The Washington Post. Although the current plan would not reduce funding to rental assistance programs, it would slash the budgets for community development projects and building maintenance. This would include a $600 million reduction in the operational funds for public housing authorities, $1.3 billion from big-ticket repairs at public housing facilities, and $1.3 billion from the public housing capital fund. The Community Development Block Grant Program would be entirely defunded after receiving $3 billion for the 2017 fiscal year.”*
