Summary

  • NCSHA President Grant Whitaker, who serves as president and chief executive officer of the Utah Housing Corporation, testified on behalf of NCSHA before the Senate Finance Committee on August 1st. The hearing centered on the nation’s critical need for affordable housing and the role that the Low Income Housing Tax Credit and tax-exempt private activity Housing Bonds play in responding to that need.

    During his testimony, Whitaker endorsed the Affordable Housing Credit Improvement Act, S. 548, which Committee member Maria Cantwell (D-WA) and Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-UT) introduced earlier this year. Enactment of this legislation is one of NCSHA’s highest priorities.
