One-Week Funding Bill Averts Partial Government Shutdown


Congress has approved a one-week extension to prevent a partial government shutdown that was set to begin on Dec. 17. The extra week will give lawmakers time to craft a comprehensive bill that will fund government agencies through the end of the fiscal year, which runs through Sept. 30, 2023.

The one-week extension also means that the National Flood Insurance Program(NFIP) will be extended an additional week through Dec. 23. NAHB continues to work with Congress to achieve a long-term reauthorization of the NFIP that will keep the program fiscally sound and let builders provide safe and affordable housing.
