Housing Budget Faces Big Cuts
Phoenix ADOH is supporting the Governor's budget. AZ Republic
On Monday, Governor Jan Brewer released a detailed budget based upon her five-point plan that she shared with the Legislature on March 4, 2009. Governor Brewer’s budget presents a sensible plan for a balanced budget that makes reductions without harming core services, protects federal funding, identifies new funding streams for essential programs, implements efficiencies to reduce reliance on the state General Fund and minimizes sweeps to other jurisdictions to prevent increasing local taxes to pay for state services.
We wanted to take this opportunity to update you on the impact of the Executive Budget to the Arizona Department of Housing. The proposal includes a $21.2 million fund transfer from the Housing Trust Fund in FY 2010, leaving at least $9.4 million for ADOH to continue providing housing services throughout the state. Considering the Legislative Leadership’s proposal to permanently defund the Housing Trust Fund, we are pleased that the Governor’s proposal will allow ADOH to continue our most vital programs including support for homeless services, housing for the seriously mentally ill and other activities.
On behalf of ADOH we hope you will join us in supporting Governor Brewer’s balanced budget and five-point plan. You can find details of the Executive Budget on the Governor's web site.
If you have any questions, comments or concerns about the Executive or Legislative budget proposals, please contact Kristina Fretwell, Legislative Liaison at 602-771-1008.
