House THUD Appropriators Pass Funding Bill with Robust Increases to Public Housing Programs

Date Published: 
May 23rd, 2019

This morning, the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Transportation, Housing and Urban Development and Related Agencies (THUDpassed its FY20 funding bill without amendments. The bill‘s discretionary funding level for the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) totals $50.1 billion, an increase of $5.9 billion above the FY19 enacted level, and $13.4 billion above President Trump’s request.

In addition to robust funding increases, such as the doubling of Choice Neighborhoods to $300 million and fully funding the Section 8 account, the proposal includes legislative language to prevent HUD from evicting mixed-status immigrant families from public housing, and to prohibit HUD from unilaterally changing the public housing annual contributions contract without public input and following the administrative procedures act process. Importantly, mandatory rent increases and work requirements were not included in the subcommittee’s bill.

The bill now moves to the full committee for consideration.
