HUD's FY16 Budget Proposal
On February 2, 2015, the Administration released their FY16 budget. The proposal continues modest funding level increases for public housing and related programs over FY15, but as in previous years, does not meet the need as calculated by CLPHA. See CLPHA's FY16 Comparative Funding Chart for HUD's proposed funding levels for programs of interest to CLPHA members, listed side-by-side with CLPHA's recommended FY15 funding levels.
CLPHA's FY16 Budget Request
On January 30, 2015, CLPHA released calculations of funding
necessary for the preservation and improvement of the Public Housing and
Housing Choice Voucher Programs. Investments in this federally assisted
housing are critical not only to keep roofs over the heads of seven
million low-income people across the nation, but also to improve their
education, employment, and health outcomes. The availability of
affordable housing positively impacts life outcomes, and as a result,
significantly reduces costs within other systems. View CLPHA's recommend FY16 funding levels.
