Finally, Enactment of FY19 HUD Bill
The comprehensive appropriations package expected to be signed into law before midnight, February 15, includes fiscal year 2019 HUD funding. Enactment of the bill averts a second federal government shutdown or another Continuing Resolution for HUD and other federal agencies that had yet to be funded for FY19.
HUD’s Restart Priorities; Expedited Contract Renewals
HUD’s Office of Multifamily Housing Programs issued two memos related to the resumption of multifamily asset management and production activities. The memos describe how HUD will prioritize its work post-shutdown. And even though the FY19 appropriation was finally passed, these priorities likely will govern much as staff address the backlog of work from 35 days limited staff/activity, and the time it will take for the remainder of annual funding to reach project accounts.
Action Taken to Address Service Coordinator Funding Concerns
No Service Coordinator grants have been paid since December, and several others have been without payments for much longer. But recent action at HUD should improve access to funds; and LeadingAge continues to advocate for the program to be prioritized for action during or following a shutdown.
