  • On Monday, August 6, the Campaign for Housing and Community Development Funding (CHCDF) will hold a webinar to discuss the status and outlook for the fiscal year 2019 federal budget and how advocates can effectively communicate with policymakers and the public about the need for increased federal investments in proven affordable housing and community development programs.

In Case You Missed It

  • Yesterday the U.S. Senate voted 92-6 to pass a four-bill “minibus” spending package that includes funding for HUD, Department of Agriculture (including the Rural Housing Service), and Department of Treasury (including the Community Development Financial Institution Fund). The package, which includes four of the twelve fiscal year 2019 appropriation bills, will still need to be reconciled with the House’s version of the bill. The passage of the package shows strong bipartisan support to allocating adequate funding for housing voucher programs and maintaining funding for vital housing and community development programs, including the Community Development Block Grant Program and the HOME Investment Partnership Program. See Enterprise’s updated budget chart for more information on program funding levels.
