According to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, Trump's proposal to raise minimum rents by up to $1800 per year for the poorest households receiving federal rent assistance would put 1.7 million people (including nearly 1 million children) at risk for eviction, hardship and homelessness. Virtually all impacted households have an annual income of less than $7,000. The proposal would triple minimum rent for these families. Learn more about the proposal here.
