Save affordable housing for artists!

Tax bill amendment puts artist housing in jeopardy

A last-minute change in the proposed tax reform bill eliminates the “artists preference” that has existed in federal law for many years that will undermine the ability to develop new affordable housing for people in our community.

We need as many voices as possible behind the push to correct this terrible amendment.

SAMPLE MESSAGE: 

 Dear Senator, 

I respectfully ask that you DO NOT REMOVE THE ARTIST PREFERENCE clause of SEC.42(g)(9)(c) Law. I would like to see the artist preference clause kept and the new veterans preference language added to it, making it a stronger and more inclusive piece of legislation.

Sincerely,  

Your Name
