As the nation’s second largest student landlord, fraternities and sororities provide affordable housing for more than 370,000 college students across the U.S. and even more benefit from daily access to our more than 3,000 facilities nationwide.
The Collegiate Housing and Infrastructure Act (CHIA) would simplify the tax code and create parity among all not-for-profit student housing entities, allowing tax deductible charitable contributions toward building and maintaining fraternity and sorority housing.
This small fix in the tax code would make a meaningful difference for so many middle-class and working-class families who rely on not-for-profit student housing to make college more affordable. It will also result in safer student housing by enabling all not-for-profits to fund sorely needed life-safety, capacity, and modernization upgrades.
Tell Congress CHIA (H.R. 1200/S. 736) needs to be part of comprehensive tax reform!
