The conferenced FY19 budget, signed into law on February 15, includes funding for a family mobility demonstration. The demonstration will fund $20 million for mobility support services, $5 million for new vouchers, and $3 million for evaluation.
In a Feb. 14 letter to FY 2017 Mainstream Voucher Awardees, HUD addresses some common issues that PHAs have faced with implementation, including administrative fee disbursement, screening criteria, preference setting, and waiting list administration. The letter also states that HUD will be hosting a webinar on waiting list administration issues in the future and that additional guidance will be forthcoming via a notice.
By vote of 83 to 16, the U.S Senate just passed a bipartisan appropriations package to fund nine departments and other agencies, including the U.S Department of Housing Urban Development, through September 2019. The spending deal, expected to pass the U.S. House of Representatives later this evening, will then go to President Trump for his signature, which, according to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is very likely.
