ACTION Releases Part Two of AHCIA Video Series


The ACTION Campaign continues its in-depth look at the Affordable Housing Credit Improvement Act (AHCIA) of 2021 (S. 1136 & H.R. 2573) in the second tranche of a three-part video series that explains the legislation’s provisions. In these videos, Enterprise Community Partners (Enterprise) Senior Director of Public Policy Ayrianne Parks and National Council of State Housing Agencies (NCSHA) Director of Tax and Housing Advocacy Jennifer Schwartz explore how the AHCIA of 2021 would enhance the Housing Credit, protect vulnerable residents, and serve hard-to-reach populations.

The second release in the series includes:

  • How the AHCIA Makes the Housing Credit a Better Tool for Preservation (Sections 202 and 303)

  • Simplifying the Student Rule (Section 203)

  • Protecting Housing Credit Residents Covered by the Violence Against Women Act (Section 205)

  • Ensuring the Housing Credit Can Be Used to Build Housing for Veterans (Section 206)

  • Claiming Housing Credits After a Casualty Loss (Section 301)

  • Controlling Development Costs for Housing Credit Properties (Section 312)

  • Improving Income Eligibility Rules in Rural Areas (Section 502)

  • Limiting Tenant-Based Voucher Payments in Certain Housing Credit Developments (Section 204)

Advocates are encouraged to share these videos with their networks and use them to prepare for meetings with members of Congress and urge support for the AHCIA. Check out part two of the ACTION video series here, where you can also find the first set of videos. Stay tuned for future updates on part three, which will be released after Memorial Day weekend.

In addition to the AHCIA video series, ACTION continues to provide up-to-date resources including those on our Advocacy Toolkit, specific National, State, and Congressional District Fact Sheets for advocates, and more.
