U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development offices will close nationwide on Monday because of government-wide spending cuts that took effect on March 1.

The offices will reopen on Tuesday. HUD previously reported closures for Aug. 2, Aug. 16 and Aug. 30.

In Pennsylvania, HUD offices are in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.

The spending cuts went into effect after President Obama and Congress failed to agree on a deficit-cutting plan, requiring government agencies to cut spending by $85 billion for the rest of the fiscal year.

The Internal Revenue Service, which had previously scheduled a shutdown for Monday, will remain open, it announced this week.

The next furlough for the IRS' 90,000 employees is scheduled for Aug. 30.

They already have been furloughed for three days.

Other government agencies are affected by the cuts, although they have not yet scheduled their days off.
