The Trump Administration's proposed cuts to HUD will cut NYCHA's budget $75 million for FY 2017 and stand to cut up to $350 million for FY 2018 based on the $6 Billion cut proposal. The cuts will mean a loss to public housing across the country as well as losses for senior services, Section 8 vouchers, and affordable housing programs
A group of community stakeholders including NYCHA resident leadership, PAVE, PS15, the Justice Center, the South West Brooklyn Tenant's Union, Carroll Gardens Association, local electeds, and others planned a community forum on this issue and to mobilize for a citywide action on April 20th.
So come join us and learn how you can take actions to fight the cuts!
