CO Senator Michael Bennet Co-Sponsors Housing Credit Improvement Act of 2017 


Last week, U.S. Senators Cantwell (D-WA) and Hatch (R-UT) introduced the Affordable Housing Credit Improvement Act of 2017 (S. 548). We are proud to share that Colorado Senator Michael Bennet, was among the original co-sponsors of the legislation.


The bill proposes to increase Housing Credit authority by 50 percent over a five-year period, and includes approximately 20 program modifications that provide states new flexibility, simplify program requirements, support the preservation of existing affordable housing, and facilitate Housing Credit development in challenging markets and for hard-to-reach populations.
