Massachusetts Could Lose 4,000+ Vouchers Unless Congress Increases Funding - February 6, 2017
Submitted by admin on Mon, 02/06/2017 - 10:07am
A new analysis by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP) indicates that the growing gap between rents and tenant incomes combined with voucher restorations and new veterans' vouchers has raised the cost of maintaining the current number of vouchers above earlier projections. It estimates that Massachusetts will lose over 1,000 vouchers if the final FY2017 budget funds renewals at the level approved by the Senate Appropriations subcommittee earlier this year and will lose almost 4,100 vouchers if the FY2017 final budget maintains funding at FY2016 levels.
