INDIANAPOLIS— Dani Weatherford, Chief Executive Officer of the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) issued the following statement today in support of Rep. Brad Wenstrup (R-OH) and Rep. Terri Sewell (D-AL/Alpha Kappa Alpha) re-introducing the Collegiate Housing Infrastructure Act (CHIA).
Statement from Dani Weatherford, CEO of NPC
As policymakers from both parties strive to make college more affordable, we strongly encourage them to consider signing on as co-sponsors of the Collegiate Housing Infrastructure Act (CHIA). This Act would help make housing more affordable for the nearly 400,000 students who live in non-profit facilities on campuses across America, and it would also help hundreds of public institutions that currently lack the capacity to house students in state-owned accommodations. The U.S. tax codes appropriately allows colleges and universities to use charitable giving to fund student-housing building and maintenance, and it is time to amend the tax code so that non-profit student housing entities can do the same.
