President Trump has proposed a new $ 1.1 trillion White House budget, which included a proposed $6 billion reduction in funding for the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). If enacted, this $6 billion reduction in HUD funding would impact millions nation-wide, including families here on the Peninsula and in Greater Williamsburg. Under this proposed budget, it would be nearly impossible for families to obtain affordable housing; meaning families could be forced to spend more on housing at the expense of food, healthcare, and other basic necessities.
HUD funded programs including Home Investment Partnership (HOME), and Self-Help Homeownership Opportunity Program (SHOP), and Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG) funds 50% of all Habitat for Humanity Peninsula and Greater Williamsburg home building costs. Many thousands of dollars that have come in over the last few years will be lost if this proposed budget is ratified!
