CDBG FY 2018 Funding Support Letter to THUD Members

Earlier this month, 1,867 national, state, and local organizations signed onto a letter to members of the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Committee urging a minimum FY 2018 appropriation of $3.3 billion in formula funding for the Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG). The letter highlights CDBG achievements and how they have been impacted by the decrease in appropriations since FY 2001. CDBG formula funding has been reduced by $1.4 billion over the last 15 years, from $4.4 billion in FY 2001 to $3.0 billion in FY 2016. These cuts reverberate throughout local communities; hurting low- and moderate-income residents, including seniors, children, veterans, and working families.
