HUD’s Office of Native American Programs Update – FY18 Budget Appropriation

Last week Congress passed a FY18 budget bill, appropriating $42.7B to the Department and $30.51B to PIH.

The Housing Choice Voucher Program and Public Housing Capital Fund received significant increases of over $1B and $800M, respectively. The Public Housing Operating Fund saw a slight increase, while PIH’s programs for resident self-sufficiency received level funding. The Native American Housing Block Grant received $100M in additional funding for competitive grants and additional funding for technical assistance.

Below are additional details:

This appropriation is 19% higher than the Administration’s FY19 Request, which we reviewed a few weeks ago. Thank you for helping our partners effectively administer this funding to continue providing critical housing assistance to millions of families across the country.

Many thanks,

Dominique Blom
General Deputy Assistant Secretary
