United States Senator Chris Coons (DE) and the Delaware State Housing Authority (DSHA) Director Anas Ben Addi joined Susan Frank, Cinnaire Senior Vice President, and supporters of affordable housing to advocate for continued HUD Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and Home Investment Partnership Program (HOME) federal funding this morning at The Village at McKee Branch in Dover, DE. The Village is a recently completed 66-unit affordable housing development. Under the Trump Administration FY 2018 budget request, the state and local communities could lose more than $12 Million annually, creating a reduction in local economic development, affordable housing, jobs and other impacts.
