Sequestration's Toll: 70,000 Fewer Low-Income Families Have Housing Vouchers

Some 70,000 fewer low-income families used housing vouchers to rent private housing in December than a year earlier, according to new CBPP projections. The projections, based on new Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) data, show that low-income seniors, people with disabilities, and families with children continue to feel the effects of the across-the-board sequestration cuts, which started last March. The big question now is whether the President and Congress will reverse these cuts next year.
