PoliticsOhio: Neighborhood-Development Funding Changes In Trump Budget Proposal

Politics Ohio

President Donald Trump’s 2018 budget blueprint calls for a more than 13 percent cut to the Department of Housing and Urban Development. The budget would also eliminate the $3 billion Community Development Block Grant program. The potential cuts have some Ohio officials worried about how to make up for the lost funding.

 

For more on what eliminating the Community Development Block Grant Program could mean for people across the Dayton area, WYSO's Jerry Kenney spoke with city commissioner Matt Joseph.

 

For this week's PoliticsOhio, Joseph starts by explaining some of the history of the four-decade-old program.
