  • $3.6 billion for Community Development Block Grants, $300 million above the 2019 enacted level. The President’s budget request proposed eliminating this program.
  • $1.75 billion for the HOME Investment Partnership Program, $500 million above the 2019 enacted level. The President’s budget request proposed eliminating this program.
