April 3, 2019 Statement
"Mr. Secretary, your budget is very similar to last year’s request, which this Committee rejected on a bipartisan basis. This year, your proposal contains even deeper cuts and would greatly reduce public housing and end most community development grants. It would lead to more people struggling to find affordable housing, and more people falling into homelessness."
April 3, 2019 Statement
"Unfortunately, this budget proposal would make our affordable housing crisis even worse, and it would relegate these vulnerable populations to an even more tenuous and marginalized existence within our society."
