Tax Policy on Tax Day
Join the Housing Committee for a video conference with Emily Cadik, executive director of the Affordable Housing Tax Credit Coalition, live from Washington DC to discuss the latest on tax policy - from tax reform to the recent expansion of the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit - as well as the 2018 federal budget and the implications for the affordable housing sector. A fierce advocate of affordable housing as a fundamental human right, Emily’s advocacy to preserve and expand the Housing Credit program contributed to the recent expansion of the credit in the 2018 budget. We will hear from Emily on the latest news and have a chance for questions and conversation.
