Even before the COVID-19 crisis, over 37,000 veterans were homeless in the United States, and there is a shortage of service-enriched affordable housing centered on veterans’ needs. The Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (Housing Credit) is a key solution to help address the vast and growing need for affordable homes for our nation’s veterans. Since 1986, the Housing Credit has served as our country’s primary tool to finance the production and preservation of affordable housing, resulting in 3.5 million affordable homes.
Today we have the opportunity to help ensure all our veterans have access to the safe, stable, and affordable housing the Housing Credit provides by passing key provisions to expand and strengthen the program through the Affordable Housing Credit Improvement Act, broadly supported, bipartisan legislation that would help build over 2 million more affordable homes nationwide.
