Mission and Membership
The A Call To Invest in Our Neighborhoods (ACTION) Campaign is a national, grassroots coalition of over 2,000 national, state, and local organizations and businesses calling on Congress to protect, expand and strengthen the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (Housing Credit).
History of ACTION
The ACTION Campaign was established in 2009 by a broad cross-section of Housing Credit stakeholder organizations in reaction to the recession and financial crisis that rapidly and drastically affected Housing Credit investment. When the market started to rebound in 2010, the ACTION Campaign shifted focus to protecting the Housing Credit in tax reform and advancing measures to further strengthen the program. The campaign was instrumental in strengthening the Housing Credit by making permanent the minimum 9 percent Housing Credit rate at the end of 2015.
Building on this success and recognizing the growing need for the Housing Credit, we have been working to expand and further strengthen the Housing Credit by supporting the bipartisan Affordable Housing Credit Improvement Act. We are also calling on Congress to protect, expand and strengthen the Housing Credit and Housing Bonds as it considers tax reform and investments in our nation's infrastructure.
