The Senate Transportation, Housing, and Urban Development (T-HUD) Appropriations Subcommittee marked up its Fiscal Year (FY) 2011 spending bill on Wednesday. The HOPWA program was appropriated $340 million, a $5 million increase from FY 2010 levels and equal to the President's FY 2011 budget request.
"The Senate is always tougher in appropriations however it is encouraging that public housing and homeless assistance programs will receive increased funding across the board, " said NAHC Executive Director Nancy Bernstine.
