Appropriations Update: House Releases 302(b) Allocations, Senate Appropriators Still Waiting

Earlier this month the House Appropriations Committee approved and announced 302(b) allocations for all 12 subcommittees for Fiscal Year 2020 (FY 2020). Subcommittees responsible for affordable housing and community development programs all saw increases to their top-line levels:

Transportation, Housing, and Urban Development, and Related Agencies (THUD): $75.8 billion, which would represent a $4.7 billion or 7 percent increase from FY 2019 levels as enacted ($71.1 billion)
Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies (Ag.): $24.3 billion, a $1.3 billion or 6 percent increase from FY 2019 enacted ($23 billion)

Financial Services and General Government (FSGG): $24.6 billion, a $1.2 billion or 5 percent increase from FY 2019 enacted ($23.4 billion)

House Appropriations Subcommittees plan to continue marking up spending bills in the next couple of weeks, with committee leadership hopeful they can bring all 12 bills to the floor by the end of June. The Senate has yet to announce a timeline for the process in that chamber.
