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.
 

Appropriations Process

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.

    On September 18, the Senate passed by a vote of 78 to 22 the House-passed continuing resolution (CR), H.J. Res. 124. The CR continues funding for all federally funded programs through December 11, 2014 at slightly below FY 2014 funding levels, on an annualized basis. To offset new funding provided through a few targeted provisions in the CR while not exceeding the overall FY 2014 spending level, the CR includes an across-the-board funding reduction of almost 0.06 percent, compared to FY 2014 levels.
