The newly released proposed FY2010 budget includes cuts to valuable housing programs, including Local Rent Supplement and housing first. We are currently in the process of parsing through the proposed budget numbers to find where the money is being reallocated.
The city’s tactic of cutting funding to these programs is a temporary fix and will have negative long term repercussions. We are hoping that the city can responsibly raise revenue in order to protect these and other critical housing programs.
