What's at Stake

Millions of Americans have a decent place to call home because of U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) programs.

President Trump and his appointee to lead HUD, Dr. Ben Carson, are planning an all-out attack on many of these programs. They propose to cut over $7 billion from HUD’s annual budget, a drastic change that will force people out of their homes and eliminate vital services. Secretary Carson has the power to roll back the clock on civil rights protections and weaken housing programs that enable countless Americans to make their rent each month.

That’s why CarsonWatch is watching their every move. We are your source for housing education and breaking news. Learn more about how changes at HUD could impact your community and the country.
