Find Out More About Proposed Federal Budget Cuts

President Obama released his budget proposal last Monday. As the administration, the legislature, and departments struggle to find a budget solution that works, see below for what our national affiliates and other experts are saying. CEDAM opposes the steep cuts to crucial housing and human services programs and is working with our partners and affiliates to protect these programs. We encourage you to contact your legislators and tell them what programs matter to you and how they help you serve your community.
