This represents a $6.2 billion reduction from the 2017 HUD budget
  • Trump's proposed budget will cut 13.2 percent of HUD's cash in 2018.
  • It would do this by eliminating several programs, including some community development and affordable housing programs.

The proposed 2018 budget released by the Donald Trump administration seeks to provide for “one of the largest increases in defense spending without increasing the debt,” stated in the opening message from President Trump.
