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.

        The undersigned organizations, which include a broad cross-section of stakeholders in the housing affordability realm, urge House passage of “The Housing Opportunities through Modernization Act” (H.R. 3700), without addition of divisive measures that would undermine the broad consensus behind these commonsense reforms. Our nation faces tremendous housing needs. This legislation is an important step forward to address a number of important items which have enjoyed broad consensus over the years. There is more to be done to address housing and community development needs, but H.R. 3700 represents solid progress in the right direction. If enacted, this bipartisan bill would build on the effectiveness of federal rental assistance while achieving some modest savings.
