Detroit CPUSA fights for housing funds


The Detroit Club of the CPUSA helped organize a protest of the proposed budget for the City of Detroit. The city will receive over $827 million in federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds. Long-time Detroiters have been demanding that part of these funds be allocated for housing, including energy-efficient home repairs, affordable housing, and reparations for overtaxation of properties that had been devalued since the economic crash in 2008. Members of the Charlevoix Village Association, Field Street Block Club, Detroit Eviction Defense, Detroit Will Breathe, and the Detroit Club attended a City Council budget hearing on April 4. They spoke at the hearing and urged the City Council to reject the mayor’s budget, which fails to adequately address the housing crisis in Detroit.
