About the Event:

MEREDA will convene a panel of experts to discuss the pros and cons of utilizing Low Income Housing Tax Credits and Historic tax credits to develop new affordable housing in the most cost effective way, and to recommend reforms that reduce costs while still preserving predictability and fairness in financing and design.

Moderated by Alan Hinsey, President of ACH Productions, LLC and host of Mainebiz Sunday.

MEREDA represents people on all sides of this issue and believes the political rhetoric should be put aside to focus on creating effective policy. This event will allow key affordable housing leaders and policy makers, as well as MEREDA members, to engage in a substantive discussion that creates a better understanding of this important issue.
