This special edition of Advancing Communities is a recording of a webinar Cinnaire hosted this week highlighting the impact of the 2020 election on federal policy, and what it means for the affordable housing and community development industries. The webinar featured Cinnaire CSO Jim Peffley along with Bobby Rozen from the National Association of State and Local Equity Funds (NASLEF) and Shannon Ross, Vice President of Policy at Housing Partnership Network. Bobby and Shannon have deep experience working on federal policy issues affecting our industries working with congress and several presidential administrations.
Bobby and Shannon sit down with Jim to share their perspective as we enter a new administration highlighting how we can work together with these policy changes to support healthy communities. The discussion includes:
- How will the closely divided Washington shape the legislative landscape?
- What will the change in administration mean for the Community Reinvestment Act and other regulatory policies?
- What can we expect when it comes to key affordable housing and community development legislative priorities, like the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) and the New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC)?
- What trends are emerging in the LIHTC industry?
