and women and children who are without
housing due to the lack of space. So therefore

chance of these poor folks of getting a house
anytime soon.Decrease in funding to the U.S
Department of housing and urban
development (HUD). It will also potentially
eliminate the community development block
grant program which helps revitalize
neighborhoods and provide people in need
with rental assistance vouchers.

His plan includes to also eliminate funds for

section 4 capacity building for community

new affordable housing units. City Council
already proposes to levy a linkage fee of

in funds each year to help build affordable
