2020 Federal Recommendations

The California Housing Partnership urges Congress to:

1) Support HR 2, the Moving Forward Act of 2020, a $1.5 trillion infrastructure package that would expand and improve California’s access to tax-exempt bond and Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) financing, and includes $100 billion to construct and preserve 1.8 million affordable homes.

2) Support the HEROES Act, the Health and Economic Recovery Omnibus Emergency Solutions Act of 2020, which responds to the COVID-19 outbreak and its impact on the economy, public health, state and local governments, individuals, and businesses.

3) Support the House-proposed HUD FY2021 appropriations levels to ensure adequate funding to vital federal housing programs as well as critical additional investments in housing infrastructure in response to COVID-19.
