Senator Cantwell Seeks Personal Stories to Strengthen Case for LIHTC Expansion
Senator Maria Cantwell (D-WA) is seeking personal stories of individuals and families who have struggled to find affordable housing and/or have experienced homelessness. Her office is looking for a large volume of stories to help demonstrate to her fellow legislators the widespread and urgent need to invest more federal resources in affordable housing.
In March, Senator Cantwell kicked off a nationwide campaign to expand the low-income housing tax credit program. Her forthcoming legislation would increase LIHTC allocation authority by 50 percent and make other changes to strengthen the program.
