DC homeless problem about to get worse

Homelessness prevention programs lack funds

Yet, no hallelujahs are warranted either. Recovery Act funds have now dried up, while the demand for affordable housing remains high and the economy hasn’t fully recovered. Many homeless service providers are scrambling to piece together stopgap measures as a result. Meanwhile, to balance the budget, Mayor Gray is cutting social programs, increasing revenue, and tapping the Housing Production Trust Fund to cover gaps elsewhere.

I hope that Mayor Gray is real proud of himself. And I hope that Kwame Brown enjoys his taxpayer supplied SUV while he refuses to raise taxes on our wealthiest citizens so that he can throw our poorest families out on the street.
