Affordable Rental Housing A.C.T.I.O.N.Founded in 2009 as a response to the need to stimulate investment in affordable rental housing through the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (Housing Credit), the Affordable Rental Housing A.C.T.I.O.N. (A Call to Invest in Our Neighborhoods) Campaign is a grassroots effort led by a broad coalition of more than 350 cross-industry organizations in every state of the nation, Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico. Relaunched in July 2011 the A.C.T.I.O.N. Campaign is focused on protecting and preserving the Housing Credit as Congress considers deficit reduction proposals and tax reform, as well as establishing permanent minimum credit rates of 9 and 4 percent for allocated Housing Credits. The campaign’s goal is to ensure that working families across the nation have access to affordable housing.
