Groups call for full HUD funding

May 27, 1999
Members of the U.S. Conference of Mayors, the National Association of Counties and the National Community Development Association today called on Congress to fully fund President Clinton's proposed $28 billion budget for the Department of Housing and Urban Development, including $4.775 billion for the Community Development Block Grant Program.
    HUD Secretary Andrew Cuomo joined members of the groups in San Francisco today to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program. Cuomo said HUD's programs, which are helping to improve the lives of millions of Americans, will be able to help even more people with the $2.5 billion budget increase proposed by President Clinton for Fiscal Year 2000. This includes a $25 million increase for CDBG.
    Congress is considering proposals to cut HUD's budget next year.
