Thursday morning, Pamela Hughes Patenaude was confirmed as Deputy Secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Ms. Patenuade has extensive experience working with HUD, holding the position of HUD assistant secretary for community planning and development under President George W. Bush. She was also integral to HUD under the Reagan administration and previously served as president of the J. Ronald Terwillinger Foundation for American Families.
“Pam’s background and familiarity with issues related to Hispanic homeownership make her well suited to this new role,” said Leo Pareja, 2017 President of NAHREP.
NAHREP looks forward to working with Ms. Patenaude and HUD to advance the association’s mission in the coming years.
