H.R. 7196 would make homeless service providers in rural communities eligible for grants under the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Continuum of Care Program. The bill would allow funds to be used for short-term emergency lodging, repairing housing units, and staff training. CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 7196 would not affect direct spending or revenues. CBO has not estimated the discretionary costs of implementing the bill. The bill contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
