Senator Cantwell Holds Roundtable Discussion on Affordable Housing
U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell (D-WA) recently held a roundtable discussion in a Washington state county facing a housing crisis. Cantwell has been a strong advocate for the LIHTC program. This past spring, Cantwell worked with Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and others to secure a 12.5 percent increase of the 9 percent housing credit program. It’s the first increase in more than a decade and will be spread out over the next four years.
