Trump has proposed $6.2 billion in cuts to Housing and Urban Development (HUD), slashing funding for Community Development Block Grants, public housing, housing vouchers, and programs serving the homeless. These are essential programs for those most in need of help, including veterans, the disabled, seniors, working poor, and youth aging out of foster care.
Script: I’m calling (____) to reject any cuts in HUD funding that increases homelessness. People will actually die from these cuts, and our emergency services will be overwhelmed. Instead of paying for our jetsetting President to golf or campaign, let’s invest in helping our own.
