H.R. 5735 would require the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to set aside about 10,000 rental vouchers for individuals recovering from substance use disorders in each year during the 2019-2023 period. CBO estimates that implementing the bill would increase spending subject to appropriation by $1.2 billion over the 2019-2023 period, assuming appropriations are made available for that purpose.
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. 5735 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2029.
H.R. 5735 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
