March 16, 2017: NHLP Executive Director Shamus Roller's Statement on Proposed Federal Budget

This morning, the Trump Administration released a blueprint of their Fiscal Year 2018 proposed budget. Though the contents were not a surprise, the proposal reflects deep cynicism about government support for housing the most vulnerable Americans and the right to a fair trial. In its blueprint, the Administration proposed over $6 billion in cuts for HUD programs, including the elimination of the Community Development Block Grant program and other similar programs that support critical housing and infrastructure needs of local governments.

Despite the claim that the budget will continue to provide housing assistance to the millions of people who access it, the truth is that over 200,000 low-income families across the country will become at-risk of homelessness and housing instability due to cuts to rental assistance. These cuts come at a time when HUD’s budget has already decreased dramatically since 2010, and stand in stark contrast to the large tax cuts that remain for wealthy real estate investors and high-income homeowners.

The Administration also proposed the elimination of the Legal Services Corporation, which provides access to pro bono legal representation. The investment in legal services is a highly cost effective way to help ensure that everyone in our country has access to justice.
The President’s proposal marks the very early stages of the budget process; a process that will eventually require a compromise between the President and Congress. NHLP is dedicated to opposing these irresponsible cuts and preventing the further marginalization of poor families and communities. We will amplify the voices of low income tenants in Washington and arm housing advocates with the tools they need to advocate for access to affordable housing and legal services programs.

There is much work to be done. Please join us.
