Congress Passes Continuing Resolution, Averts Shutdown

With only hours to spare before a government shutdown began at midnight, Congress passed a continuing resolution (CR) on Saturday, September 30, to fund the government through November 17. The CR – which was only introduced around noon the day before the shutdown was to begin – passed both the House and Senate with bipartisan support and provides level funding for HUD programs.

Congress will need to pass all 12 appropriations bills before November 17 to avert a shutdown – or Congress will need to pass yet another CR. As of press time, both the House and Senate have passed their Transportation and HUD (T-HUD) appropriations bills through their respective appropriations committees, but neither have been taken up by their entire chamber. It is possible that the full House may consider its T-HUD bill in the next week.

PHADA will continue to keep members updated through Breaking News, the Advocate, and member eBlasts regarding updates to the appropriations process.
