Notes:
Some accounts reflect rounding. Brackets ([]) signify sub-accounts.

Unlike the President’s proposed budget, MTW funding has been integrated with other accounts.

HUD-VASH Tribal funding includes renewal funding, administrative fees, and new vouchers.

The Mainstream voucher recommendation is to fully fund the vouchers currently being utilized with full accompanying administrative fees. The Department has additional funds in its accounts for new vouchers, which remain unused. Includes administrative fees with renewal funding.
