NLIHC Budget Chart Outlines HUD Appropriations
Posted by Matthew Brian Hersh on March 16, 2009
Here’s a handy resource released today by The National Low Income Housing Coalition today assembled following last week’s Senate passage of H.R. 1105, the omnibus FY09 appropriations bill. The bill includes nine FY09 spending bills, including the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development and Related Agencies spending bill, for the fiscal year that began on October 1, 2008.
The bill provides for increases for most HUD housing and community development programs. Among notable improvements over FY08 funding levels are increases to the Public Housing Operating Fund, HOME, and Policy Development and Research. Total HUD funding increased from $37.6 billion to $41.5 billion.
