Government Funding Bill Signed, NFIP Good Through Dec. 21

President Donald Trump signed a bill crafted by Congressional negotiators Thursday that will extend funding of the federal government, including the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), to Dec. 21.

Funding for both were scheduled to expire at midnight Friday, following a one-week extension signed by Trump on Nov. 30.

Specifically, the bill provides funding for federal agencies waiting completion of the fiscal year 2019 appropriations process.

Outstanding appropriations bills include Financial Services and General Government, which contains spending levels for several credit union-related funds, including the Treasury’s Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) Fund and NCUA’s Community Development Revolving Loan Fund (CDRLF).
