Need for Preservation of Housing Subsidies
The elimination of project based rental subsidies can have serious consequences, including:
  • Further loss of already scarce affordable units
  • Setback for economic and racial desegregation efforts
  • Loss of support network and community. This is especially a problem for particularly vulnerable tenants such as the elderly, children, and the disabled.
  • Loss of location choice for the handicapped and people of color
  • Transfer of financial obligation from the federal to the local level, which potentially places the greatest burden on the areas with the least resources.
