As reported by The Hill, the Trump budget proposal would end many federal programs, including the Housing and Urban Development Department’s Community Development Blog Grants, also known as “CDBG.”
The CDBG cut is one of the program cuts making up $4.123 billion in reductions to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), according to The Hill. The whole fiscal 2018 budget proposal would eliminate 66 programs for a savings of $26.7 billion, according to The Hill.
As described by MACo’s Associate Director, Natasha Mehu,
Counties in Maryland are eligible for CDBG grants either through the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development, which administers the grants to non-entitlement counties, or directly through HUD for entitlement counties (Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Harford, Howard, Montgomery, and Prince George’s). All would be impacted by cuts.
