NMHC/NAA Statements on Brian Montgomery's Nomination to Lead FHA and Pam Patenaude's Confirmation as HUD


 NMHC/NAA Statement on Statement on Brian Montgomery’s Nomination to Lead the FHA


Statement from the National Multifamily Housing Council (NMHC) and National Apartment Association (NAA) following Brian Montgomery’s nomination to be Commissioner of the Federal Housing Administration (FHA):


“NMHC/NAA applaud Mr. Montgomery’s appointment and hope that the Senate moves quickly to confirm his nomination. His deep experience and knowledge of the housing industry positions him well to lead FHA under the Trump administration. We look forward to working with him, Secretary Carson and other HUD leaders to develop sensible housing policies that recognize the importance of the apartment sector.


“With new data showing that the U.S. needs 4.6 million more apartments by 2030 just to meet demand, it has never been more important to have federal partners who advance policies that support the multifamily industry’s efforts to house the 39 million households who are currently building their lives in an apartment and the millions more who will join them in the next 13 years.”

Statement from the National Multifamily Housing Council (NMHC) and National Apartment Association (NAA) following Pam Patenaude’s confirmation as Deputy Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD):

“NMHC/NAA congratulate Pam Patenaude as the newly confirmed Deputy Secretary of HUD. Having spent her career working to develop sound housing policy, she will be an asset to the Trump administration as it develops innovative approaches to housing America’s families.

“By 2030 the nation will need to build 4.6 million new apartments and balanced, thoughtful policy measures will be critical to reaching that mark. Pam’s deep experience makes her, along with Secretary Carson, a strong partner for the apartment industry as we look to encourage development, drive growth and create jobs.”
