As part of MCC's 2021 Virtual Annual Assembly, a new episode of MCC from the Capitol focuses on the affordable housing crisis in Missouri, a topic that may be unfamiliar-or very familiar-to many of us. Like many states, Missouri faces a shortage of affordable housing. Military veterans, low-wage earners, families, the physically and mentally disabled and the elderly all struggle to find an affordable place to live. How do federal and state low-income tax credit programs help to encourage developers to build housing for those in need? Meleah Spencer, Chief Executive Officer of The Kitchen, and Becky Selle, co-founder of Sustainable Housing Solutions, LLC, join the podcast to discuss how they utilize these tax credits in their efforts to provide low-income housing solutions in Springfield, MO. Click here to listen to this episode today!
