From the National Alliance to End Homelessness:

As Congress has released its final spending bill, there are notable spending increases for housing and homelessness that will have a definite impact on communities nationwide.

Some key measures include:

  • $3.633 billion for Homeless Assistance Grants. This is an increase of $420 million – the largest one-year increase since the program began!
  • $75 million for new Permanent Supportive Housing
  • $107 million for the Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program

And from the National Low-Income Housing Coalition:

Congressional leaders released today a final fiscal year (FY) 2023 omnibus spending bill that includes significant funding for HUD’s housing and homelessness programs. Overall, the final spending bill provides HUD programs with $61.8 billion, or $8.1 billion more than FY22-enacted levels. At this amount, the final bill provides approximately $745 million more than the amount provided in the Senate proposal, and nearly $1 billion less than the amount provided in the House proposal. For more details on the FY23 spending bill, see NLIHC’s updated budget chart and full analysis.
