NALHFA Releases 2019 National Policy Agenda

Posted By Administration, Thursday, April 4, 2019
WASHINGTON, DC – The National Association of Local Housing Finance Agencies (NALHFA) released today its 2019 National Policy Agenda. This document is a comprehensive advocacy agenda for 2019, which outlines important policy priorities for the housing finance industry. These stated priorities are focused on preserving and expanding funding and tools that are critical to combating the affordable housing crisis that the United States is facing.
 
"As Congress and the White House work to find solutions to the affordable housing crisis, the National Association of Local Housing Finance Agencies stands poised to work with policymakers on legislation and regulations that will provide communities with the tools necessary to connect households across the nation with safe and decent affordable housing options," said NALHFA Executive Director Jonathan Paine. "The 116th Congress has an opportunity to make affordable housing a top priority and advance policies and expand funding to vital programs that are necessary to combat this crisis."

The 2019 NALHFA National Policy Agenda addresses ten policy areas:

  • Private Activity Bonds & Municipal Bonds
  • Low Income Housing Tax Credit
  • Down Payment Assistance Programs
  • Risk Sharing Program
  • HOME Investment Partnerships and Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)
  • Housing Choice Vouchers
  • Project-Based Rental Assistance
  • Housing as Infrastructure
  • Housing Finance Reform and Duty to Serve
  • Opportunity Zones

NALHFA's 2019 National Policy Agenda is being distributed to members of Congress and key Administration officials, and can be used by members when visiting members of Congress.
