    Subsidized housing can change lives. Now it's facing deep cuts | Opinion - Philly
    The 2019 budget released by the White House calls for deep cuts, $8.8 billion or an 18.3% reduction, to the Department of Housing and Urban Development. This would reduce the availability of subsidized housing and vouchers, like the Housing Choice Voucher Program that allowed Paloma to rent a home, even with her very low income.
