What is the PUPP Act?

Providing for Unhoused People with Pets (PUPP) Act was introduced in the118th Congress by Reps. Crow (D-CO), Fitzpatrick (R-PA), Schiff (D-CA) and Mace (R-SC).

This bipartisan bill aims to remove a barrier to emergency housing for veterans, families, and individuals that have pets. Specifically, the bill authorizes the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) secretaries to award one-time grants to acquire, renovate, rehabilitate, re-purpose, retrofit, or construct a property to be used to accommodate unhoused individuals with pets, and to fund pet-related operating costs. It would authorize $5 million for each fiscal year 2023 through 2026.
