Hill Update: Responsible Homelessness Funding
On November 20, 2014, House Appropriations Committee Chair Hal Rogers (R-KY) named Representative Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) chair of the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies (T-HUD) Subcommittee for the 114th Congress.
The T-HUD Subcommittee is responsible for allocating appropriations for housing and homelessness programs, including the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Grants Program.
I am honored to have been chosen to chair the Subcommittee on Transportation, Housing, and Urban Development. I look forward to working with House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers and other committee members to best solve our nation’s transportation and housing issues. It is of utmost importance that we prioritize transportation initiatives that will improve our local communities, while also providing housing solutions for those most in need. I will work tirelessly to uphold the high standards established by former Subcommittee Chairmen, including the Honorable Tom Latham and our very own South Floridian, the Honorable Bill Lehman.
Said Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart.
