On April 21, the AHTCC hosted a virtual Advocating for Affordable Housing through the AHCIA of 2021. The webinar discussed key provisions of the AHCIA, its potential impact, and how to advocate for its advancement. The advancement of the recently reintroduced Affordable Housing Credit Improvement Act (AHCIA) to expand and strengthen the Housing Credit will depend on our advocacy efforts to quickly building strong, bipartisan support for this legislation.

Register for the AHTCC’s Virtual Fly-In: Monday, May 10 through Friday, May 14
During the week of May 10, the AHTCC will hold a virtual fly-in for AHTCC members to advocate for the AHCIA.
Throughout the week, the AHTCC will host meetings between groups of AHTCC members and key congressional offices who we will be asking to co-sponsor the AHCIA or who will be influential in advancing our Housing Credit priorities this year. To prepare participants for their meetings, we will hold a prep call with all participants and provide necessary background information and talking points for each meeting. We will also host an Advocacy 101 session for anyone who has not yet participated in one of our fly-ins – we welcome all advocacy newcomers!
