Rep. Jimmy Panetta, D-Calif., this week introduced the Farmworker Housing Improvement Act of 2018, legislation that would reform the United States Department of Agriculture’s Section 514 and Section 516 farmworker housing programs to better align them with the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit program. H.R. 7071 would also increase the maximum amount of a loan or grant under Section 514 or Section 516 to $3 million and require an annual schedule for notice of funding, applications and awards for Section 514 and Section 516 funding.
