Ask Your Representatives to Support Inclusion of AHCIA in Reconciliation 

As you know, Democratic Congressional leaders are pursuing a dual track process for passing infrastructure legislation, including both a bipartisan infrastructure bill focused on roads, bridges, and broadband that passed the Senate today, and a Democrat-only reconciliation bill, which we expect to include affordable housing infrastructure priorities. In anticipation of the reconciliation package—the details of which are expected to be worked out over the next several weeks—Democrat Housing Credit champions Representatives Suzan DelBene (D-WA) and Don Beyer (D-VA) are circulating a letter for signatures in support of including the Affordable Housing Credit Improvement Act (AHCIA). The deadline for Representatives to sign on to the letter and support the AHCIA was extended to this Friday, August 13, after which it will be sent to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA).

Share and ask your Representative to sign the Dear Colleague Letter today.

Below this bulletin, please find a list of Representatives who have already signed on to the Dear Colleague letter. The letter is open to all Members of the House regardless of whether they are current cosponsors of H.R. 2573. While there is very strong bipartisan support for the AHCIA, it should be noted that we expect only House Democrats to sign this letter, as it is focused on reconciliation. If your Representative is already a cosponsor, please be sure to thank them in your outreach about the Dear Colleague letter. If your Representative is not yet a cosponsor, be sure to ask them for their support on the bill and the letter.

Thank you for your attention to this matter and please contact Ayrianne Parks (aparks@enterprisecommunity.org) with questions.
