Hi, I’m Emily Cadik, director of public policy with Enterprise Community Partners. Enterprise is thrilled about the reintroduction of the bipartisan Affordable Housing Credit Improvement Act. So, there are currently more than 11 million households paying more than half their income on rent, which means they’re one paycheck away from not being able to cover their medical bills, not being able to afford healthy food, not being able to afford transportation, or be able to respond if a car breaks down. Either that, or they’re not able to pay their rent. So we need legislation that’s not just going to maintain the status quo, but actually start producing more affordable homes for our country. Enterprise is proud to lead the ACTION Campaign, which is a coalition of now more than 2,000 organizations and businesses working to advance this legislation and support the Housing Credit. We hope that all of our partners join us in working to build support for this legislation, whether it’s by writing to/calling your members of Congress, or even better yet, taking them out to see an example of the impact of the Housing Credit in their state or district first hand.
