The Affordable Housing Tax Credit Coalition (AHTCC) announced that the Hotel Maytag Apartments in Newton, Iowa, is a 2020 recipient of the Charles L. Edson Tax Credit Excellence Award in the Historic Preservation category, recognizing affordable housing developments and organizations that have demonstrated especially impactful use of the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (Housing Credit).
Announced each year from the nation’s capital, the awards honor Housing Credit developments that are strengthening communities, improving residents’ opportunity and boosting economies in urban, suburban and rural areas across the country. The awards come at a time when the COVID-19 pandemic and its economic impact have intensified the need for affordable housing, compounding the challenge facing at-risk families and individuals already struggling to pay rent.
