CLPHA Review of FY22 Funding Bill for Key HUD Programs

On March 9 and 10, 2022, after months of false starts, delays, and negotiations over many thorny issues, the U.S. Congress finalized and passed HR 2471, the “Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2022,” that includes all twelve fiscal year 2022 (FY22) appropriations bills and supplemental funding to support the military and humanitarian crisis in Ukraine. The bill was then sent to President Biden for his signature.

Division L, Title II of HR 2471 contain provisions making appropriations for the Departments of Transportation, and Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies (THUD) for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2022. For the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the bill provides a total of $53.7 billion, an increase of $4 billion above FY21.

Below is an overview of the FY22 funding levels for several programs of interest to CLPHA members, along with selected passages and/or rationale of policy directives and recommendations from the House and Senate Joint Explanatory Statement (the “agreement”)  (italicized; and, in part, bolded for emphasis), along with CLPHA’s updated funding chart.

Biden Administration Releases Full FY22 HUD Budget Proposal
Programs Bolstered, New Programs Proposed, Funding Increased


On May 28, 2021, the Biden Administration released its full fiscal year 2022 Budget Proposal (FY22) for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The Administration had previously released a “skinny” budget in early April with a broad overview of its funding priorities. The $68.7 billion request is a $9 billion or 15 percent increase from the FY21 budget enacted level.

In a complete and welcome reversal, the Biden HUD budget attempts to correct the funding and policy devastation and consequences from the previous four years. Core HUD programs are bolstered, new programs are proposed, and funding for some programs are at higher levels that have not been seen in years or ever.

Below is a review of the Administration-proposed funding levels for some HUD programs of interest and CLPHA's FY22 comparative funding chart, along with selected explanations from the HUD congressional justifications (CJs) and explanations from the HUD budget appendix (Appendix).
