Posted on: April 22nd, 2016 by NADO Admin

The Senate Appropriations Committee unanimously approved its version of the fiscal year (FY) 2017 Transportation and Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Appropriations bill this week.  The bill totals $56.5 billion, an $827 million decrease from FY2016 enacted levels and $2.9 billion below the President’s budget request.  The bill provides highway and transit dollars consistent with the levels included in the recently-enacted surface transportation authorization bill, the FAST Act.  For HUD’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program, the bill provides $3 billion (level funding with last year and $200 million above the President’s request).  The bill provides $950 million for the HOME Investment Partnerships Program (level funding with last year and the President’s request).
