We dare you to look inside HUD’s budget cuts!

While the Obama Administration continues to tout ending homelessness, the realities speak for themselves. Our partners at the Western Regional Advocacy Project based in San Fransisco have come up with a U.S. Department Housing and Urban Development (HUD) fact sheet that outlines more devastating cuts on housing and homeless services at the national level.

This comes on the heels of conflicting reports by the U.S. Conference of Mayors outlining an increase in family homelessness, and the National Alliance to End Homelessness based Washington D.C. who claims homelessness declined in 2010-2011.

In Portland/Multnomah County and in Oregon homelessness increased during that same time period.

This year, the City of Portland is expecting millions of dollars in Federal cuts from HUD in the 2012-13 up and coming budget cycle.

If you’re still with us after all of that, check out the fact sheet that outlines more devastating cuts on housing and homeless services at the national level.

  1. Wow. I am on housing assistance and pay a third of my meager income for my rent (which has been such a blessing considering I was homeless before that). I received a letter a few weeks ago that my rent is going up $100, then a few months later it’s going up again. I am scared…but I will forgo groceries to keep a roof over my head……:)
