On May 22, Representatives Pat Tiberi (R-OH-12th) and Richard Neal (D-MA-1st) introduced H.R. 4717 to establish a permanent minimum 9% Housing Credit rate for new construction and substantial rehabilitation and a minimum 4% rate for the acquisition of affordable housing.
The bill already has a total of 31 co-sponsors in addition to Representative Tiberi, including Representative Bill Pascrell (NJ-9th) with strong bipartisan support. If your member of congress has not already signed on as a co-sponsor, please reach out to him and ask him to co-sponsor H.R. 4717.
