Homelessness Update

Congress Passes Budget Deal. Now What?
8c143745-a9c3-41fc-8bfe-f199638ae6a7.png
After a series of delays, continuing resolutions, and even a brief government shut down, last week, Congress reached a deal on the Fiscal Year 2018 budget.

The two-year budget agreement increases caps on overall non-defense spending and adds critical one-time investments for disaster recovery. This represents an important opportunity to increase the capacity for homelessness assistance programs. To learn more about the budget deal and what it means for advocates, check out the Alliance’s recent blog post.
