Congress Approves HUD Funding Increases image


On December 17th, Congress approved increases to the HUD budget that impact supportive housing.

The House and Senate have agreed on across-the-board funding increases for the HUD programs that are key to supportive housing.  It is expected that the President will sign the bill, avoiding a government shutdown.  This represents an incremental increase keeping the programs whole, not a major new investment.

Unfortunately, provisions in the Affordable Housing Credit Improvement Act (AHCIA) that had broad bipartisan support were not included in the accompanying tax extenders bill.  AHCIA remains a key legislative priority for the Network in  2020.
