U.S. Mayors Support Expanding the Housing Credit

Last month the U.S. Conference of Mayors passed a resolution in support of expanding the Housing Credit and called for increased investment in the nation’s critical affordable housing infrastructure. Eric Enderlin, president of New York City’s Housing Development Corporation, and Christine Hensley from the Des Moines City Council, wrote in The Hill that consensus between public officials in NYC and Des Moines — two very different places — indicates that the affordable housing crisis is a bipartisan issue that transcends geography and should not go unnoticed by Congress. Enderlin and Hensley urge lawmakers to protect and expand the Housing Credit, which includes supporting the Affordable Housing Credit Improvement Act in the Senate (S. 548) and House (H.R. 1661).
