Inviting Members of the Congress and their staffs to visit affordable housing communities in their home states and districts. We educate them on the importance of the continued construction and rehabilitation of affordable rental housing units, highlighting the individuals and families living there.
Emphasizing the economic impact the construction and rehabilitation of housing has in their communities. By demonstrating that affordable housing in their communities is helping public safety personnel, teachers, single working mothers, the elderly and veterans, we can help members make a human connection, and thus turn them into advocates.
The Housing Advisory Group encourages our members to reach out and develop relationships with their congressional representatives, emphasizing the importance of the LIHTC and affordable housing programs to their constituents. The tools on the accompanying pages will assist you in these efforts and we encourage you to let us know how we can augment your efforts at home with these decision makers.
