The House Appropriations Committee approved $43.6 billion for HUD in fiscal 2019, which represents a $941 million increase above the fiscal 2018 enacted level and $11.9 billion above the Trump administration’s fiscal 2019 request.

The following are fiscal 2019 funding levels approved by the House panel for key HUD programs, as well as spending totals for USDA programs that were approved by the committee last week:
