The ability of housing programs to serve low income people in need depends on federal appropriations. We monitor the federal budget process and advocate for the highest possible appropriations for HUD and USDA Rural Housing programs, while assuring sufficient funding to preserve all existing low income housing resources and prevent loss of units affordable to, or rental assistance for, extremely low income households.
On April 11, 2013 NLIHC held an online briefing on President Obama's FY14 budget request to Congress. The briefing covered proposed funding for all major HUD and USDA housing programs, policy changes proposed in the budget, and gave insight into the next steps of the FY14 budget process. Materials from that briefing are available for download from this page, along with our budget fact sheet and budget charts.
