Fulop: Trump’s proposed budget would cost Jersey City $9.6M in HUD funding
HUDSON COUNTY VIEW - B John Heinis -March 16, 2017
Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop says that President Donald Trump’s (R) proposed $6 billion budget would cost the city $9.6 million in funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
“With these budget cuts, the President is turning the back the clock and reversing years and years of progress that has been made in cities like Jersey City, Newark and across the country,” Fulop said in a statement.
“He is cutting programs we know are having a positive impact in urban areas, whether by turning a vacant building into a home or providing job training for the unemployed. These are investments in communities and investments in people.”
The mayor also called the proposal “draconian” and overlooks the positive impact HUD has in urban communities.
