President Trump Proposed to Slash Housing Benefits - ACT TODAY!

Urge Congress to Reject these Harmful Proposals!

Housing benefits are under attack.

President Trump’s FY19 budget request — unveiled today — slashes federal housing benefits that help millions of low-income seniors, people with disabilities, families with children, low-wage workers, veterans, and other vulnerable people afford their homes. The proposal includes severe funding cuts, as well as harmful rent increases and arbitrary work requirements that would leave even more low income people without a stable home, undermining their ability to live with dignity and climb the economic ladder to achieve financial security.

Healthy Aging Begins at Home
Over the next 15 years, the explosive growth of the nation’s senior population will present unprecedented challenges. Unfortunately, millions of Americans will find they lack enough savings to fund their retirements. Some will struggle to afford their housing, while others will find their housing is ill-suited for living independently. Many will eventually need help with the “activities of daily living,” like eating, bathing, and dressing, assistance that can be both costly and taxing on other family members. Most older Americans will suffer from at least one chronic condition.

In November 2016, LeadingAge Florida co-hosted with the Bipartisan Policy Center a forum on senior health and housing. Held at the University of Miami, the forum sought to explore innovations in senior housing, new collaborations that may be necessary to support seniors as they seek to age in place, and public policy frameworks that are necessary to make it all work. Much of the discussion was based on the Bipartisan Policy Center’s May 2016 report: Healthy Aging Begins at Home.
