Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency
NCSHA is a national nonprofit, nonpartisan association that represents the affordable housing interests of housing finance agencies before the administration and Congress. Its members are the HFA’s of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, New York City, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and more than 300 of their affordable housing partners.
“NCSHA plays a vital role by providing national leadership on pressing issues impacting affordable housing around the country,” said Hudson.
”Housing is such a key component that provides stability for families, as well as stimulating cohesiveness and economic vitality for communities. I am honored to help lead the National Council of State Housing Agencies at a time when affordable housing has the potential to do so much good to enhance people’s lives and help drive our national economic recovery.”
Hudson served the council previously as vice president and secretary-treasurer. His election as president came during NCSHA’s annual conference held October 20-23 in Orlando, Fla.
Since 2003, Hudson has been PHFA’s executive director and CEO. PHFA
is Pennsylvania's leading provider of capital for affordable homes and rental units and is one of the largest housing finance agencies in the United States.
Hudson began his PHFA career as a staff accountant in 1975. He has held progressively more responsible posts and was promoted to deputy executive director and chief financial officer in 1995. He serves on the boards of Commonwealth Cornerstone Group, the Federal Home Loan Bank of Pittsburgh and the National Housing Trust. He is a former member of the Consumer Advisory Council of the Federal Reserve Board.
