Last week the House and Senate Appropriations Committees both voted Fiscal Year (FY) 2024 Transportation-Housing and Urban Development (T-HUD) appropriations bills out of committee. The Senate funding bill, which was released the same day as the hearing, provides just over $70 billion for HUD’s programs, representing an $8.26 billion (or roughly 13 percent) increase from FY 23-enacted levels. The proposal would include enough funding to renew all existing Tenant-Based Rental Assistance and Project-Based Rental Assistance contacts and provide slight increases to the Homeless Assistance Grants program, Native American Housing Block Grants and other programs. Other programs would receive level funding, and few would face cuts under the Senate’s proposal. Funding for FY 2023 expires on September 30 and legislators head out of town for August recess through Labor Day, leaving a few legislative days to complete FY 2024 funding.
