Federal Homelessness Appropriations
|Each year, Congress passes a budget, allocating funds to federal programs, including housing and homelessness programs. This page explains where Congress is in the process and includes funding levels for key programs.|
Congress finalized fiscal year (FY) 2014 funding on January 17. The final funding levels were largely a compromise between the two overall and many individual program funding levels proposed by the House and Senate Appropriations Committees last summer, and for the most part, fell well below the levels proposed by the President in his FY 2014 Budget Proposal.
Congress was working with a new topline funding level for FY 2014 as outlined by the Murray-Ryan Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013, which partially eased sequestration for FY 2014 and allowed both Chambers to move forward with the same overall spending levels.
The FY 2014 Discretionary Homelessness Budget Chart represents various funding levels (FY 2013 enacted, proposed by the President for FY 2014, and final FY 2014). Please note that blank spaces indicate that this information is not yet available. Programs marked with a + represent new programs proposed in the President's Budget Proposal.
