Housing Advocates Urge NO Vote on Tax Reform Proposal
Say legislation harms NJ housing affordability


Nonprofit community developers and housing advocates today sent a letter to members of the New Jersey Congressional Delegation, urging them to oppose the tax reform legislation under consideration in the U.S. House of Representatives. On the proposal, Housing and Community Development Network of New Jersey (the Network) President and Chief Executive Officer Staci Berger issued the following statement:

“We are adamantly opposed to any public policy that threatens the supply of affordable homes for our residents like this proposal would do. There are investments, including tax credits that create homes on the chopping block that have been a major asset to our state’s economy. Our representatives in Congress cannot in good conscience vote for any legislation that hurts the opportunity for NJ’s economy to thrive.”
