FY 19 Appropriations
Senate Maintains Increased Funding from FY 18 Levels
THE FY 19 T-HUD APPROPRIATIONS BILLS maintain most of the gains realized in the FY 18 budget. While funding was proposed at level or increased amounts for Public Housing Operating, Voucher renewals and Section 8 administrative fees, the Capital Fund continues to be severely underfunded at just over 50 percent of actual need. While the Senate approved increasing the Capital Fund by $25 million from FY 18 in late July, the House sought a decrease of $116 million. Even with increases, admin fees are funded at an 85 percent proration in the Senate and a 77 percent proration in the House. As this went to press, the House had not brought its bill to the floor for vote.
