President's Budget Proposal Released: What Funding Cuts Will Mean for Homelessness Systems

The President's budget proposal for FY 2021 was released yesterday. While homelessness programs were spared the kinds of extreme budget cuts that other programs saw, there will be important work ahead to secure appropriate investments for homeless assistance.

Some notable points from the budget proposal:
  • Homeless assistance funds for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development are proposed to be cut by $4 million
  • Proposed 2.2% decrease in funding for Tenant-Based Rental Assistance (which funds Housing Choice Vouchers)
  • Changes and cuts to Medicaid that would make it more difficult for low-income people to get health care, including mental health treatment and addiction treatment
