ABSTRACT
This article reports that lawmakers sharply criticized both the U.S. President George W. Bush administration's proposal to eliminate the Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD) Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program and the administration's approach so far in trying to implement that goal. President Bush included in his fiscal 2006 budget blueprint the proposal that would replace HUD's $4.7 billion CDBG program and 17 other federal community and economic development programs with a $3.7 billion Strengthening America's Communities Grant Program that would be administered by a yet-to-be-created agency within the Department of Commerce.
