S. 710 would reauthorize Native American and Native Hawaiian block grant and loan guarantee programs, which provide housing assistance, through fiscal year 2020. In addition, the bill would authorize a new set-aside program to provide rental assistance to Native American veterans who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. CBO estimates that implementing S. 710 would cost about $2.4 billion over the 2016-2020 period, assuming appropriation of the necessary amounts.
Pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply to this legislation because it would not affect direct spending or revenues.
S. 710 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA).
