Funding for updating house

Fortunately, there are many resources available nationwide specifically for people who are elderly or disabled.If you’re planning a home remodel for a person with a disability or special need, there many support programs to choose from.

This guide will identify legal and financial resources available to citizens, seniors, and veterans, offer tips to hire the right home remodeler, and suggest modifications throughout the home to make the space as accommodating as possible.

While the details of any remodeling project depend on specific needs, the issues of cost, available assistance programs, and legal rights should be answered before you get started.

The Federal Housing Administration’s (FHA) Section 203(k) can help you buy and renovate a house, or remodel an existing home.

Determining the best FHA loan for you will depend on the amount you need to finance, how much equity you have in your home, and much more.

We are glad to see Congress considering appropriations bills on schedule this year.

However, it is important that Congress avoids budget gimmicks and sticks to the discretionary funding limits in current law. Both the House (by a 309-118 vote) and the Senate (by a 79-18 vote) have passed the FY 2017 omnibus appropriations bills, which funds the government for the rest of the fiscal year (through September 30).The bill will be sent to the President where he is expected to sign it.The table below compares actual funding for FY 2016 with the Senate 302(b) allocations for FY 2017 and the allocations in the final FY 2017 omnibus.The additional billion in this year's allocations is primarily due to higher spending in the defense, homeland security, and military construction/Veterans' Affairs accounts.The first table has been updated to reflect the passage of the omnibus, and the allocations table has been updated to reflect the numbers in the bill.See our blog post for more about budget gimmicks contained in the bill.The table below shows the status of each appropriations bill.To learn more about the appropriations process, read our report: Appropriations 101, and read here for more detail about how the House and Senate are moving forward without a Budget Resolution.In the absence of a budget resolution, each chamber may enact a deeming resolution that sets the 302(a) allocation for that chamber.The Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 gave the Chairman of the Budget Committee authority to set the 302(a) allocation for the Appropriations Committee for Fiscal Year 2017 at the statutory discretionary spending cap established by the Bipartisan Budget Act.
