New Housing Credit Fact Sheets on Older Adults

Legislation | September 15, 2017 | by Linda Couch

LeadingAge is proud to have worked with the ACTION Campaign to produce two new fact sheets describing the importance of the Low Income Housing Tax Credit program to meeting the affordable housing needs of older adults.

The fact sheets for the House bill (HR 1661) and Senate bill (S 548) fact sheets are great tools to provide members of Congress when advocates ask for support for the House and Senate bills that would expand and strengthen the Housing Credit Program.

The House bill makes numerous improvements to the Housing Credit program, including helping the program be more beneficial to extremely low income households. The Senate bill, S. 548, would also make these improvements, and would expand the Housing Credit by 50%.

LeadingAge is urging members of Congress to cosponsor the House and Senate bills and for Congress to protect, expand, and strengthen the Housing Credit as it delves into its tax reform debate.
