What is the Impact of Sequestration on Affordable Housing?
Please join us for a serious look at the impact of sequestration on affordable housing in our community at our next HAC meeting.
On March 1, an arbitrary $85 billion in cuts went into effect due to Congress’ failure to compromise on how to reduce the federal deficit. One of the local agencies impacted was the Housing Authority of the County of Santa Clara (HACSC). HACSC serves approximately 17,000 families, seniors, veterans, the disabled and the formerly homeless. Since federal fiscal year 2012, HACSC’s share of the sequestration cut is a staggering $21 million (1,000 families receiving Section 8 rental assistance equals $15 million)
What impact is sequestration having on some of the most vulnerable in our community? What can we do collectively to prevent additional sequestration cuts in 2014 and in the future? Katherine Harasz, HACSC’s Deputy Executive Director and General Counsel, will be presenting information on these impacts, and actions that the agency hopes to take in order to avoid terminating families from the program.
Join us on May 10th for a lively discussion and a call to action.
