Senate Issues HUD Funding Proposal & Stage is Set FY22 Budget Battle

This week, the U.S. Senate released its FY 2022 Transportation-HUD (THUD) spending bill. Though this legislation is unlikely to come to a vote, the  proposed funding levels will serve as the basis for negotiations with the House on a final FY 2022 THUD bill.  

The Senate THUD bill includes sizable increases although most accounts are lower than the House-passed FY 2022 THUD bill. Specifically, the bill includes a major expansion to the voucher program, which was in the House-passed FY22 THUD bill and in the President’s budget proposal. 

The proposed funding increases in both the Senate and House bills are direct results of NAHRO member advocacy. NAHRO thanks its members for continuing to be a strong voice for housing and community development programs. 

NAHRO has provided in-depth analyses of Public Housing, Section 8, and Community Development programs. (restricted to NAHRO members): 

 

Urge Congress to Keep Housing In Infrastructure Bill 

Take Action Today Using NAHRO’s Action Alert

You can still send letters to lawmakers about the importance of housing as infrastructure. Negotiations continue between a divided Democratic party and threaten to undermine the hard work NAHRO and its members have done to ensure housing is included in infrastructure legislation. 

The $3.5 trillion Build Back Better Act is stuck in the House of Representatives as leadership tries to gather votes for the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework (BIF), which is a related piece of President Biden’s “Build Back Better Agenda.” The Build Back Better Act is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to preserve and create affordable housing that currently includes $80 billion for public housing, $75 billion for Housing Choice Vouchers, $40+ billion for HOME and CDBG, and billions more for other essential programs.

These essential housing infrastructure investments are at risk of being cut from negotiations entirely. We cannot let this happen! We must tell Congress and the White House not to miss this opportunity to help the lives of millions of Americans.
