On April 19 th, the Senate full Appropriations Committee approved a FY’2013 funding bill for HUD which included: › $2.15B for McKinney- Vento Homeless Assistance Grants › Still $80M below President’s Request
With elections looming and such a vast difference between the House and Senate 302(b) proposed spending levels for Transportation-HUD, ($1.794 billion), there will likely be continuing resolutions to keep government running throughout the fall.
