President Trump proposes to increase rent for HUD-assisted households from 30% of adjusted income to 35% of gross income with the elimination of deductions, including those for child care and medical expenses. Rents nationally will go up by 44% or $780 annually on average for 4 million HUD-assisted households. We need your help to fight against this cruel proposal to collect $3.2 billion in additional rent, which low-income families cannot afford!
