The NMTC means a great deal to our organization and the communities we serve. We have over 35 years developing affordable housing for our working families, farm workers, migrant farm workers, seniors, and veterans. This credit has allowed organizations like CVHC to continue providing the American Dream of homeownership to thousand of individuals and families who could not otherwise have a roof over their heads. Therefore, the Coachella Valley Housing Coalition is proud to join others in urging Congress to provide a permanent extension and expansion of the New Markets Tax Credit.
