METHODOLOGY:

This bill appropriates $9 million in FY22 and $9 million in FY23 for the purpose of increasing rates paid to homeless shelters to $20 per night.  The Department of Health and Human Services provided information during the FY22/23 budget process stating that these would be the amounts necessary to raise rates above the budgeted figure of $8.80 per night.  Although the bill contains an appropriation in FY22, it does not contain language making that appropriation nonlapsing, so it is likely that only the FY23 appropriation will be available to the Department for the purposes of the bill.
