The Trump administration is moving to shut down all federal programs designed to help the homeless, including a program to help people with disabilities find jobs.
The administration’s move follows a recent directive from the Justice Department that effectively killed the “Homeless Veterans Act,” which helped hundreds of thousands of veterans find jobs and other services.
President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Wednesday directing the Department of Justice to terminate all federal funding for the program.
Trump said he’s looking to shut it down because it “has been proven to not be effective.”
The program, which was established in 1978, provides homeless veterans with a $100 monthly stipend to live in their homes and help them access services such as job training, education and job search assistance.
Trump’s move came after Trump signed a memorandum directing the Justice and Homeland Security Departments to end federal funding to the program, according to The Washington Post.
Trump also directed the Department to eliminate a program that provides financial aid for homeless veterans.
The Trump White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
