WASHINGTON – “Pam Patenaude has been a dynamic and effective deputy secretary, which is one of the most important housing positions in any administration,” said NHC President and CEO David M. Dworkin. “She has been a passionate advocate for relief efforts in Puerto Rico, and a key voice on behalf of housing within the Trump administration.”

“The good news is that Secretary Carson has built a strong team at HUD. Brian D. Montgomery will be an outstanding acting deputy secretary and should be considered a front runner for a permanent appointment,” Dworkin said.

The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development announced earlier today that Deputy Secretary Pam Patenaude is stepping down at the end of this year. She brought over 30 years of housing experience during her second stint at the agency, as she also served as assistant secretary for Community Planning Housing and Development in the George W. Bush administration.
