H.R. 4258 would allow owners of properties that participate in the Project-Based Rental Assistance (PBRA) program to make the Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) program available to their tenants. The bill also would remove a limit on the amounts that can be deposited into escrow accounts for some FSS participants. CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 4258 would cost $13 million over the 2018-2022 period, assuming appropriation of the necessary amounts.
Enacting the bill would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 4258 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2028.
H.R. 4258 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA).
