Due to low spending limits, the draft U.S. House of Representatives Transportation Housing and Urban Development (T-HUD) Appropriations Committee bill, released earlier this month, provides at least $1.5 billion less than what is needed. This proposed funding level will not ensure that every household in New Jersey currently receiving housing remain in their homes.

The funding cuts in the House Bill are not as deep as President Trump’s proposed budget released in May. However, the bill significantly cuts funding that New Jersey relies on for critical affordable housing resources that rebuild the lives of extremely low income seniors, people with disabilities, families with children, veterans, and other vulnerable population.
