The proposal to increase the minimum rent paid by rental assistance beneficiaries is no longer “urgent,” due to the additional resources in the HUD budget, Carson said Friday morning.

The plan was condemned by housing advocates, who said it would add to the burdens of the poor. The budget, he said, “reflects the fact that we must better serve the American people by tackling our staggering $20. It is a proposal that is intended to start a conversation,” Carson told the public housing authorities a week after releasing the plan.
