RAD was initially authorized with a unit cap of 60,000 in the FY12 appropriations bill, which has since been lifted to 455,000 in the FY18 appropriations bill. In order to meet the demand for RAD, CLPHA strongly supports eliminating the RAD cap.
CLPHA and the RAD Collaborative have urged Congress to support the Senate THUD proposals for the FY18 appropriations bill, which eliminate the RAD cap. The 3-month Continuing Resolution (CR) for FY 2018 appropriations expired on December 8, 2018 and was extended through the end of December. A conferenced THUD appropriations bill is still expected to be included in the final form of the FY 2018 appropriations act. Congress is currently working on a budget deal.
