From Fresno Housing's press release:
Governor Gavin Newsom has appointed Tyrone Roderick Williams, Chief Executive Officer of Fresno Housing Authority, to the California Finance Housing Agency Board of Directors. For 40 years, the California Housing Finance Agency (CalHFA) has supported the needs of renters and first-time homebuyers by providing financing and programs that create safe, decent, and affordable housing opportunities for low and moderate-income Californians. Established in 1975, CalHFA was chartered as the State’s affordable housing lender to make low-interest rate loans by selling tax-exempt bonds. A self-supporting State agency, bonds are repaid by revenues generated through mortgage loans, not taxpayer dollars.
Tyrone Roderick Williams is a catalyst for positive change and innovation and an industry leader in the affordable housing industry. He has spent the past 25 years successfully leading multi-million dollar, affordable housing initiatives totaling over $1.7 billion.
“I am humbled and honored to serve our state housing finance agency at this pivotal moment. We are facing unprecedented challenges, and the need for affordable housing opportunities has never been greater,” Williams said. “The appointment by Governor Newsom affirms my experience and commitment to preserving and expanding affordable housing options in the Central Valley and across the state. I am elated to support the work and impact of CalFHA,” said Williams.
