At the annual Washington Conference for the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials (NAHRO), the annual Legislator of the Year Award celebrated two legislators who have significantly contributed to furthering the cause of housing and community development. Greensboro Housing Authority (GHA) had the honor of presenting one of the awards for Legislator of the Year, to Representative David Price of North Carolina’s fourth district. Taking place on April 9, 2019, GHA’s Chief Executive Officer, Tina Akers Brown and GHA’s Chief Operating Officer, James Cox, presented the award to Representative Price alongside Wayman A. Williams, CEO of Greenville Housing Authority (not pictured).
Representative Price is the current chairman of the Appropriations Transportation-Housing and Urban Development Subcommittee. Having a deep understanding of the importance of housing and community development programs, he has worked to fund HUD programs and advance the cause of affordable housing and community development in North Carolina and nationwide.
GHA is thankful to have an advocate in the U.S. Congress who understands the great need for affordable housing and how to practically fight for the programs that keep the fundamental elements of the industry alive. Congratulations to Representative David Price!
