The budget has moved on to the Conference Committee! Legislators are deciding between the two versions of the budget – one passed by the House, and one passed by the Senate.
The Senate version provides more money for public housing in two ways: the Operating Subsidy and special grants for Resident Services Coordinators.
Please contact your Senator and Representative and ask:
As provided in S.2400, Increase Public Housing Operating Subsidy to $107 million (Line Item 7004-9005) and Increase funding for Resident Services Coordinators to $6.5 million (Line Item 7004-4314).
