Description


What if there were one single way we could significantly improve the American economy, public health, and offer attractive investment opportunities, while also providing more homes for American families and workers?

The American Dream has always been built on the notion that no matter where you come from, you can be successful. For the past century, housing has played a major role in making the American Dream a reality for millions of individuals. In short, the availability of affordable housing stands at the crossroads of capitalism and compassion.

In American Dream Come True, Tony Bertoldi leverages over two decades' worth of experience in affordable housing to explain in clear and entertaining prose what affordable housing really is and who it impacts. Spoiler alert: all of us.

By debunking the common misconceptions about affordable housing, Bertoldi shows how supporting affordable housing is a benefit for the entire American ecosystem, and where you fit in. From addressing inflation, job creation, and creative ESG strategy, to reducing health costs for American taxpayers, Bertoldi shows how the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC, pronounced LI-Tec) program creates a more balanced society where people from all backgrounds can work, live, and contribute to their community and to the health of the American economy.

If there is any truth to the phrase "home is where the heart is," then the call to action for all of us is the same--to put our heart into creating more affordable homes. It's good for individuals. Good for families. Good for health. Good for business. Good for America.
