NCSHA works with the Administration and the congressional appropriations committees to seek maximum funding for HUD and USDA programs relevant to HFAs. The appropriations webpage provides information on the Administration’s budget proposals, appropriations legislation, and related NCSHA advocacy documents.
The President typically proposes his federal budget by March 1. The House appropriations subcommittees usually begin marking up their appropriations bills in March and the House Appropriations Committee aims to complete action on all twelve appropriations bills by June 10. It is customary for the Senate to wait until the House completes their work on spending bills before they take up the bills and make their changes. Appropriations bills must be passed and reconciled by both chambers and signed by the President before the start of the next fiscal year on October 1. If the bills are not completed, the Congress may pass a continuing resolution or omnibus to continue funding all federal programs.
