Mayor Barrett Predicts More Homelessness
  • Barrett warns of looming housing crisis
  • By GEORGIA PABSTPosted Sept. 29, 2004
  • Cuts in federal assistance are creating a looming
    crisis for low-income housing in Milwaukee, Mayor
    Tom Barrett and city Housing Authority officials
    said Wednesday.
  • The cuts in federal housing assistance combined
    with an increasing poverty rate mean "the federal
    government is turning its back on low-income
    people," Barrett said.
  • He predicted that will mean more people will
    double up with other family members, go to
    shelters or become homeless.
