The House will vote on six of the 12 Fiscal Year (FY) 2024 bills today. Congressional leaders are expecting a quick passage in the Senate followed by signature of President Biden before the funding deadline of March 8. Overall, the final spending bill provides HUD programs with $70 billion, $8.3 billion more than FY 2023-enacted levels. For more information on specific funding amounts, see the National Low Income Housing Coalition’s updated budget chart.  

Congressional leaders are negotiating bigger policy items for the remaining six appropriations bills with a soft deadline of finalizing the bills by next week to release the text ahead of the March 22 deadline. 

As FY 2024 appropriations close out, the FY 2025 appropriations process is already underway. Requests for Congressionally Directed Spending are due in mid-March. Contact your Congressional office to find out their timeline and process for submitting requests. The President’s FY 2025 budget is expected to be released early next week after the State of the Union.  

House Financial Services Committee Ranking Member Maxine Waters (D-CA) will hold a press conference on March 7 at noon ET in the House Triangle ahead of the State of the Union calling on President Biden to highlight the need for affordable housing and ending homelessness in his address.
