Dwayne Alexander, interim president and CEO of Jacksonville Housing Authority, has been elected to a two-year term on the National Leased Housing Association’s board of directors by NHLA members.
The National Leased Housing Association is a national organization representing all major participants — private and public — in the affordable multifamily rental housing industry. Its members include developers, attorneys, local governments, state housing finance agencies, lenders, owners and managers, nonprofit sponsors, investment bankers, syndicators, and other public housing authorities like JHA, all of whom have an interest in the provision and maintenance of quality affordable rental housing for low and moderate income Americans.
“I am honored to be elected by my colleagues at the National Leased Housing Association. This is an opportunity to elevate the lessons we have learned at Jacksonville Housing Authority on how to assist people with their housing needs, helping them achieve self-sufficiency and homeownership, while bringing back best practices from our counterparts across the country,” said Alexander. “I look forward to serving in this role and contributing to NHLA’s leadership as they guide national housing policy and funding decisions before Congress, Treasury, and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.”
The Jacksonville Housing Authority (JHA)) was created in 1994 to fill the need for a more effective community service oriented public housing agency. The Board of Directors consists of seven members who are appointed by the Mayor. These seven members have a strong record of success in private sector process and work hard to build a better future for the local Jacksonville community. For more information, visit www.jaxha.org.
