The Government Shutdown and WAP

Tuesday, October 22, 2013

The government reopened on October 17, after a 16-day shutdown. Early on October 17, the President signed legislation reopening the federal government and funding it through January 15th as well as extending the debt ceiling until February 7, 2014. The funding is set at the House Republican-backed level of $986 billion, with a continuation of sequestration. This means that, for the next 90 days, federal programs will be funded at last year’s level. 

For the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP), the interim Continuing Resolution (CR) funds WAP at $68M. Since the Program Year 2014 WAP funding cycle does not start until April 1, 2014, the current CR may not be a final funding figure for WAP. We will keep you informed as things progress
