HUD Targeted for More Than $1 Billion in Cuts

Real Estate Sales Representative with Wizards of Waz Real Estate

This article outlines a few of the proposed budget cuts to HUD. In particular it mentions cuts to the Development Block Grant program and Neighbor Works.

The Development Block Grant program cuts are minor and I, for one, am glad to see that. In our small community of Maricopa n, these grants are vital to our local non profits and the money has been put to good use.

The Neighbor Works program, which provides housing counseling, is proposed to be cut by more then half. As far as I am concerned, this is a good move and it can be eliminated altogether for all I care. I have been to a few of these "counseling" seminars and from what I have seen they serve no purpose other than to confuse home owners more than they already are. Personally, I don't believe that the government belongs in the counseling business. My tax dollars are best spent elsewhere.

There's so much waste in HUD.  To save $1B in that system, should be pocket change....
