Center on Budget and Policy Priorities Outlook for House/Senate 2016 HUD Bills Under BCA, NDD spending cap for 2016 is flat; but there will be no large across-the- board funding cuts as in 2013 House/Senate likely to adhere to current NDD cap, at best THUD subcommittees committed to renewing rental assistance for all current families; could require +$2 billion in 2016 House/Senate THUD bills will be austere – but this may not be the end of the story
Center on Budget and Policy Priorities Will there be a budget deal? Lots of moving pieces, e.g., debt ceiling, SCOTUS decision on ACA, tax/entitlement changes, as well as BCA spending caps There will be a budget deal (in the fall?); scope/content uncertain – but raising NDD cap is one of the President’s primary goals Final 2016 funding levels in THUD & other appropriations bills could be affected by the outcome of this negotiation.
