Funding Level $90 Million Less
Than FY14 Total HUD Funding
On December 9, 2014, the House and Senate unveiled their FY2015 CR-Omnibus Appropriations bill. The bill would fund government agencies through the remainder of the fiscal year, except for the Department of Homeland Security, which is funded through February 2015.
On December 11th the House approved the budget on a 219-206 vote. This was a six vote majority.
The Senate on December 12th approved the budget on a vote of 56-40.
Overall, the bill includes $35.6 billion for HUD programs, which is approximately $90 million less than total HUD funding in FY2014. This includes $30M more for McKinney-Vento and $50M less for HOME. We will have more details in our next Hill update. The bill also includes funding for the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration’s (SAMHSA) homelessness service assistance programs and funding for activities supported through the Runaway Youth and Homeless Act (RHYA). Both of these were flat funded.
