Highlights from the President's FY 2018 Budget Request: Dept. of Housing and Urban Development

May 26, 2017

Unless otherwise noted, all FY 2018 figures are from the department’s budget justification, and all FY 2017 figures are from committee reports for the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2017.

Notably, the president’s proposed FY 2018 budget would eliminate funding for Community Development Block Grants. These grants received $3.0 billion in the FY 2017 budget.

The proposed FY 2018 budget would provide $85.0 million for research and technology at the Department of Housing and Urban Development, a $4.0 million (4.5 percent) decrease from FY 2017.

The Jobs-Plus program, which provides workforce development training for public housing residents, would receive $10.0 million under the proposed FY 2018 budget, a $5.0 million (33.3 percent) reduction from FY 2017.
