WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Steve Pearce (NM-02) recognizes the Pueblo of Acoma Housing Authority for winning first place at the 24th Annual Charles L. Edson Tax Credit Excellence Awards.
"Native American communities, like many rural areas across the nation, are in dire need for safe and affordable housing options. The Pueblo of Acoma's Housing Authority has been a leader in New Mexico and nationally in innovate and creative methods that fill the Pueblo's housing need. PAHA's use of a low-income housing tax credit allowed the Pueblo to develop housing for those in the community who are in greatest need, while also recognizing their history and heritage by creating a project that honors the Pueblo's original city. I congratulate the Pueblo of Acoma, the Housing Authority, and all its partners on this well-deserved recognition."
The Pueblo of Acoma Housing Authority constructs, maintains, and operates tribally developed housing on and off Acoma lands. The Charles L. Edson Tax Credit Excellence Awards honors only the most exceptional housing developments across the country. PAHA received the Charles L. Edson Tax Credit Excellence Award for its innovative use of a Low Income Housing Tax Credit.
