    Capitol Connection: 2018 Affordable Housing Year in Review  

    One year ago, we were absorbing the potential effects of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, recovering from the battle over Tax Exempt Bonds and the Qualified Census Tract reduction attempt and the fight over the elimination of the Historic Tax Credit. Over the course of 2018, the affordable housing industry waded through the onslaught of political noise and legislative battles as we continued our attempts to increase resources in light of the national rental housing crisis. Bob Moss, Principal and National Director of Governmental Affairs, has compiled excerpts from last year’s Capitol Connection articles (as well as his prediction for 2019).
