President Doug Bibby spoke October 16 at the New Hampshire
Housing Summit aimed at making housing policy a key issue in the 2016 election.
Sponsored by the J. Ronald Terwilliger Foundation for Housing America’s
Families and the Bipartisan Policy Center, the summit was part of a push by the
organizations to place housing
policy upfront in the presidential race. Key candidates that spoke at the
event included New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, Senator Lindsey
(R-SC) and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee.
in a panel entitled, “Skin in the Game: Accessing Private Capital to Build
Affordable Housing,” Bibby stressed the vital role that the LIHTC Program
plays in developing affordable rental homes. He noted that the nation is losing more affordable rental
units to obsolescence than the program is creating.
