The Affordable Housing Credit Improvement Act Continues to Gain Strong Bipartisan Support

As of this week, more than one-fourth of the Senate and one-third of the House have cosponsored the Affordable Housing Credit Improvement Act (AHCIA)!

Of the now 27 Senate cosponsors, the most recent additions include Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Chris Coons (D-DE), Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), Tina Smith (D-MN), Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Tim Kaine (D-VA), Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), and Krysten Sinema (D-AZ).

ACTION and our partners have also secured 153 Representatives in the less than five months since AHCIA’s introduction. The most recent House cosponsors include Representatives Kendra Horn (D-OK-5), Peter Visclosky (D-IN-1), Gregory Meeks (D-NY-5), John Joyce (R-PA-13), Doug LaMalfa (R-CA-1), Debbie Mucarsel-Powell (D-FL-26), Gilbert Ray Cisneros (D-CA-39), Anna Eshoo (D-CA-18), David Trone (D-MD-6), Stephen Lynch (D-MA-8), Bill Foster (D-IL-11), Albio Sires (D-NJ-8), Conor Lamb (D-PA-17), Joseph Morelle (D-NY-25), Paul Tonko (D-NY-20), and Madeleine Dean (D-PA-4).

ACTION applauds these members for their leadership on providing more affordable housing to communities nationwide, and thanks our members and partners for their advocacy!

Let’s keep the momentum going and ensure that the AHCIA advances as part of any moving tax legislation. ACTION encourages advocates to contact members of Congress who have cosponsored and ask that they tell their leadership, including tax Committee leadership, that advancing the AHCIA is a priority. In addition, we encourage ACTION advocates to ask their members of Congress who have yet to sign-on to cosponsor the legislation today. Check out ACTION’s Advocacy Toolkit to help you as you prepare for your advocacy.

Thank you for your support!
