Please Take a Moment To Highlight the Important Work You and Your Companies
Have Been Doing to Help Residents Throughout The Pandemic

 
Next week, NAHMA and housing industry colleagues will meet with leaders from the Biden Administration, including White House staff and leaders from HUD, USDA, Treasury, and CFPB. This discussion will center around the eviction moratorium expiration, aiding residents to obtain emergency rental assistance, and vaccination outreach efforts. The goal is to highlight the critical work that the affordable housing management industry has and continues to do during this pandemic, while advocating for increased funding support from the administration.
 
Separately, NAHMA is also requesting member participation in a video campaign to support LIHTC. Our advocacy request to members is two-fold:

 
1. Please take a moment to share a story with NAHMA
 
NAHMA is requesting brief summaries on how you and/or your company have assisted residents with vaccination clinics, obtaining emergency rental assistance, and providing other support (financial or resident service-related). Please share:
 
  • Quantifiable Information -- For example, data on the amount of vaccination clinics hosted/residents vaccinated, amount of emergency rental assistance requested/received, or other resident support through prepayment agreements with residents, or events.
  • If you or your company has a write-up, press release or publication, please feel free to share it as an alternative. 
 
There is no length requirement, so please share any information that you would like to highlight. **As always, NAHMA commits to protecting the identity of our members in discussion with the Administration and Lawmakers. Unless you give us permission, all stories will be listed under “NAHMA Member”.** 
 
Please respond to this email with your summaries (and any attachments) or email Michal (at mmachnowski@nahma.org ) or Larry (lkeys@nahma.org ).
 
Deadline: Monday, August 2, 2021.  
 
2. Share Your Housing Credit Story
(Video Contest)
 
NAHMA is also requesting member participation to highlight the critical role that LIHTC plays in communities around the country. In support of the ACTION Campaign, NAHMA needs you to share your Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (Housing Credit) story! ACTION is requesting you to submit short video clips (2 minutes or less) by Friday, July 30th, demonstrating how the Housing Credit allows you to do the work you do and impacts your community and the people you serve. These videos will help connect the real-life impact of the Housing Credit and the need for Congress to strengthen and expand the Housing Credit through the Affordable Housing Credit Improvement Act.” For additional information on this effort, including How it Works, Submission Instructions, and Video Tips, please click here
 
Deadline: Friday, July 30, 2021.
