Statement from NHC President and CEO Chris Estes on the nomination of Pamela Hughes Patenaude as Deputy Secretary of HUD

WASHINGTON—“The National Housing Conference is pleased to see Pamela Hughes Patenaude nominated as Deputy Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.  She has been a housing leader in a variety of roles, not least of them a member of NHC’s Board of Governors.  She knows both the business of affordable housing and the powerful role it plays to help people and communities prosper. There is great potential for bipartisan solutions to the nation’s housing challenges, and we hope Ms. Patenaude can help lead the department in those efforts. NHC congratulates her and urges the Senate to confirm her swiftly.”
