WASHINGTON (7/21/15)--The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) named Richard K. Green as its senior adviser for housing finance, a one-year appointment that begins this month. Green replaces Edward Golding, who served as principal deputy assistant secretary for the Office of Housing since March.
According to HUD, Green will advise on the creation of a sustainable housing system that provides support during market disruptions. His position falls within the Office of Policy Development and Research (PD&R), and he will help set the agenda for finance research within that department.
Specifically, Green will help guide HUD’s ongoing efforts to ensure continued access to homeownership and multifamily investment opportunities for creditworthy borrowers, HUD said in a statement. He will be part of PD&R’s work with the Federal Housing Administration and participate in cross-agency housing groups, such as the Rental Policy Working Group and others.
Green comes to HUD from his role as director of the University of Southern California’s Lusk Center, a position he will return to after June 2016.
