NAHB Continues to Push Congress on Housing Credit Legislation

NAHB continues meeting with congressional offices to encourage support for legislation in the House and Senate that will make the fixed 9% Low Income Housing Tax Credit permanent. This legislation, H.R. 3661 in the House and S. 1989 in the Senate, would also fix the 4% allocated credit for acquisition costs.

In recent weeks, two additional members of the key House Ways and Means Committee added their names as cosponsors to the House bill: Representatives Dave Reichert (R-Wash) and Devin Nunes (R-Cali), bringing the number of cosponsors to 14. 

In addition, sponsors Pat Tiberi (R-Ohio) and Richie Neal (D-Mass), sent out last week a “dear colleague” letter urging their colleagues in the House to join them as cosponsors. This letter will greatly help NAHB's outreach to congressional offices. 

NAHB will update the page with additional resources, including talking points to use when meeting with your members of Congress.
