VA-HUD Spending Bill Approved by Congress

This week, both chambers approved their versions of the FY2002 Veterans Affairs, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies appropriations bill. On July 31, the House approved, 336-89, its bill (H.R. 2620). The Senate passed its measure (S. 1216) on August 2 by a vote of 94-5.

Both bills would provide $1 billion for homeless housing programs, a $3 million increase over FY2001 and $5 million more than the President’s request. Additionally, both bills would provide the Housing Opportunities for People with AIDS (HOPWA) program with a $19 million increase to $277 million, the same amount requested by the President.
