Through the reintroduction of The Affordable Housing Credit Improvement Act (AHCIA) of 2021, today marks another step towards making affordable housing a reality. AHCIA seeks to expand and strengthen the Housing Credit that provides individuals and families within rural, suburban and urban communities throughout the country access to safe, affordable housing options.
Since it’s inception in 1986, the Housing Credit has served 8 million households, comprising of essential workers, veterans, seniors, individuals with disabilities or experiencing homelessness, and more.* The AHCIA of 2021 would expand on the Housing Credit success by*:
Increasing production and preservation of affordable housing
Better serving hard-to-reach areas and populations
Removing barriers to affordable housing preservation
Streamlining program rules and promoting efficiency
