Proposed 2020 HUD budget sees meager increase from last year's proposal

President Donald Trump announced his budget proposal Monday for fiscal year 2020, including a nearly 7% increase for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's 2019 budget proposal.

But this proposal is actually a decrease from 2019’s enacted budget. While the funding is an increase from Trump’s requested budget for 2019, it is down a whole $8.6 billion, or 16.4%, from 2019's enacted budget.

The Trump administration requested $44.1 billion for HUD, saying the funds would be used to prevent and end homelessness, invest funding to reduce lead and other home health and safety hazards and preserve the rental assistance to HUD-assisted households.
