Senator Wyden Introduces Middle-Income Housing Tax Credit
U.S. Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) recently introduced legislation to create a middle-income housing tax credit (MIHTC) intended to encourage the development of affordable housing for Americans with moderate incomes. The bill is modeled after the LIHTC program. The legislation aims to provide a comprehensive affordable housing package in tandem with the low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC), a tool Wyden has long supported that’s helped to finance construction of affordable rental units.
