Editor,

I am a Senior Citizen who lives in Low-income Senior and Disability housing. When I moved into my apartment (my home) I made the statement, “I will not move again until I am carried out.” Now I am concerned I will not be “carried out” but “forced out” because of the attempt by the current Missouri Legislature to repeal the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) law, which assists tens of thousands of low-income Missouri citizens, like me, in obtaining permanent shelter at a lower rate of rent. If LIHTC is repealed it will mean Senior and Disabled citizen as well as low-income families will see an increase in their rent. Many will lose their homes because they will not be able to afford the increased rent. And there will not be anymore quality low-income housing built under the LIHTC law is repealed. A friend, who lives in the same Senior Housing I do, created an on-line petition to fight the repeal of the LIHTC law. We are hoping many more will help us fight this repeal by signing the on-line petition at: https://petitions.moveon.org/sign/prevent-repeal-of-low. Please help us fight the repeal of the Low-Income Tax Credit law by signing the petition.
