FY 2024 CR Averts Shutdown for Now

- Provides $16 billion in supplemental funding for the Disaster Relief Fund (DRF)
- Extends Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) authorities, including the Airport Improvement Program (AIP), through December 31
- Extends expiring programs, including Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), Community Health Centers, and the National Flood Insurance Program
- Delays scheduled cuts to Medicaid disproportionate share hospital (DSH) payments
This brief highlights key provisions of the CR. Table 1 at the end of the brief compares funding in the CR for selected grants to current and proposed levels.
