Federal Policy Brief  |  March 17, 2017

President Trump released his “skinny budget,” today. The proposed cuts to programs that help poor and low-income people are enormous, and the increases small. This budget proposal starts off the Fiscal Year 2018 budget season, and there will be lots of back and forth with Congress and opportunities for you to weigh in.

The proposal was not very detailed, and there is still a lot that we don’t know. But here’s an overview of its impact on homelessness.

A chronically homeless person costs the tax payer an average of $35,578 per year. This study shows how costs on average are reduced by 49.5% when they are placed in supportive housing. Supportive housing costs on average $12,800, making the net savings roughly $4,800 per year. Congress can enact bipartisan solutions to finally end chronic homelessness by 2017. To make this happen, Congress must increase funding for HUD’s Homeless Assistance account by $414 million to $2.664 billion total, as requested by the budget.
