Congress has only a day to reach an agreement to fund the federal government for the remainder of FY19 as the current CR or continuing resolution expires.
The President signed the continuing resolution to fund the government’s affordable housing programs through December 7, averting a government shutdown.
Congress still has not reached a deal on the FY18 Budget, creating the possibility of a government shutdown when the continuing resolution expires.
The National Low Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC) reports that Congress remains at an impasse over how to fund the federal government for FY18.
Congress appears likely to pass another short-term continuing resolution (CR) to fund the government through mid-February.
