Senate Considers FY 2019 HUD and USDA Funding Bills

The Senate this week began consideration of its FY 2019 Transportation-HUD (THUD) and Agriculture appropriations bills, as part of a $154.2 billion four-bill "minibus" package. The Senate may need to work into next week to complete consideration of this sizeable measure. The Senate Appropriations Committee-passed THUD bill fully funds all tenant- and project-based rental assistance and maintains FY 2018’s increased funding levels for the HOME Investment Partnerships Program. See NCSHA’s budget chart for more on proposed HUD and USDA rural housing program funding levels.
