The AHTCC’s 2022 Fall Meeting and Charles L. Edson Tax Credit Excellence Awards took place in Washington, DC, on Tuesday, September 20. The event featured remarks from Senator Maria Cantwell (D-WA) and Senator Todd Young (R-IN), as well as video remarks from Senate Finance Committee Chairman Ron Wyden (D-OR) and Representative Don Beyer (D-VA).
Throughout the day, the AHTCC honored recipients of the 2022 Charles L. Edson Tax Credit Excellence Awards (Edson Awards), which recognize outstanding affordable housing developments financed with the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (Housing Credit). All 10 award winners received recognition by at least one member of their delegation and by 13 members of Congress in total, who attended the event to present awards in-person, provided congratulatory videos or statements, or met with the winners in their offices on Capitol Hill.
During the event, the AHTCC also honored Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Congressman Brad Wenstrup (R-OH-02) with Affordable Housing Champion Awards for their leadership in advocating for affordable housing in Congress, designated the 2022 David Reznick Lifetime Achievement Award to Beth Stohr for her exemplary service to the affordable housing industry, and held timely panels on issues impacting the Housing Credit.
