NMHC PAC’s priority continues to be focusing on supporting key candidates that are working on issues that affect the multifamily industry. Last week, NMHC members participated in a fundraising breakfast with Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) members.
Jim Schloemer of Continental Properties, Daryl Carter of Avanath and Jeff Brodsky of Related met with eight CBC members to discuss housing affordability issues. NMHC members and CBC members engaged in a robust conversation on key issues, including Low-Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC), Workforce Housing, Section 8, Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), the HOME Investment Partnerships Program, and the challenges that the industry faces when seeking to build and preserve affordable housing.
The CBC is very influential and consists of 49 members from both the House and Senate, many of who serve on key committee with jurisdiction over issues important to the multifamily industry.
As this election year is proving to be unpredictable – with a record number of retirements and – already – several high profile primary upsets, it’s more important than ever to continue to support the Members of Congress that are allies to the multifamily industry.
NMHC PAC continues to monitor and engage in the ongoing elections and help our allies who are running in tight races. With strong member support, NMHC PAC has been able to increase not just the industry’s visibility, but also the level of understanding of Congressional leaders when it comes to the multifamily industry.
NMHC member support is critical to our mission and is greatly appreciated. To those that have already contributed – thank you!
