The House and Senate have introduced the same bipartisan bill that seeks to improve the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit and allow builders to increase affordable housing production. The Affordable Housing Credit Improvement Act will increase 9% credit allocations generally reserved for new construction by 50%, creating more opportunities for builders and developers to take on affordable housing projects nationwide, the National Association of Home Builders reports.
