ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

Wellman

Mark Philpot, who was recently elected to the Wellman City Council, has been trying to spread the word on proposed budget cuts for several Federal Housing and Urban Development programs.

Philpot has met with the Washington County Board of Supervisors and the office for Congressman Dave Loebsack to talk about the negative impact cuts could have.

There is a proposed $6.8225 billion cut for Housing and Urban Development in the 2018 federal budget.

These cuts include a complete eradication of the Community Development Block Grant, which was funded for $3.060 billion, and the HOME Investment Partnerships Program, to the tune of $950 million.
