HUD RELEASES PROPOSED FY2012 BUDGET
Spending blue print focuses on fiscal discipline, creating strong, sustainable, inclusive communities and quality affordable homes
WASHINGTON – U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Shaun Donovan today unveiled HUD’s fiscal year 2012 budget proposal.

“The budget provides a roadmap for HUD to work with our regional and local partners to win the future by investing in innovation, building neighborhoods that are connected to jobs and providing greater access to opportunity, so American businesses and communities are the best in the world” said Donovan. “The President has said that we need to live within our means to invest in the future. That has meant tough choices, including to programs that, absent the fiscal situation, we would not cut. But American families are tightening their belts and we need to do the same.”
The President is submitting this budget in an economic environment that is significantly improved from when the he took office.

Ø by helping responsible families at risk of losing their homes and meeting the need for quality affordable rental housing;
Ø by transforming neighborhoods of poverty and ensuring that children there have access to the quality education we need to compete in the 21st century; Continue reading
