House HUD Bill Would Cut Assistance to Low-Income Renters

The House Appropriations Committee approved a fiscal year 2015 funding bill for the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) that makes disproportionately deep cuts in housing assistance for low-income families. The Committee’s Transportation-HUD funding bill contains funding cuts for HUD’s low-income housing assistance programs that are twice as deep, in percentage terms, as the overall funding reduction for non-defense discretionary programs that’s required under the Budget Control Act caps.

Sequestration's Toll: 70,000 Fewer Low-Income Families Have Housing Vouchers

The big question now is whether the President and Congress will reverse these cuts next year.
