Contact Congress and Share its Success in Your Community
It is now more important then ever that we make the case to our congressional delegation that the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) is necessary to continue to create affordable housing in New Jersey, especially in light of the increased demand for affordable housing post-Sandy.
There is real concern that this program could be eliminated by tax reform.
Please take a minute TODAY to email your member of Congress and tell him that it is critical the LIHTC be protected.
