National Housing Conference is Circulating a “Dear Representative” Letter to Generate Support for the Housing America's Workforce Act of 2005

Tuesday, July 19, 2005 - 7:15AM

The National Housing Conference (NHC) is circulating a “Dear Representative” letter and encouraging interested parties to send it to their Congressional representatives to generate support for the “Housing America's Workforce Act of 2005.” H.R. 3194 was introduced last month by Rep. Nydia Velázquez, D-N.Y. and would help promote employer assisted housing (EAH) and provide a tax incentive to employers who participate. NHC reports that a “Dear Colleague” letter is also being circulated in the House of Representatives in support of the measure. A companion bill, S. 1330, was introduced in the Senate last month by Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y.; Gordon Smith, R-Ore.; and Mel Martinez, R-Fla. Detailed analysis of the measures will be available in the August 2005 LIHTC Monthly Report.
