Madison – State Representative David Crowley (Milwaukee) has been appointed to serve as a member of the Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority (WHEDA) Board of Directors.

“I am honored and excited to join the board of WHEDA,” said Crowley. “Providing and maintaining affordable housing is the cornerstone of a thriving economy that works for everyone. Especially in my home city of Milwaukee, balancing the thriving economy while ensuring the availability of affordable housing is of the utmost importance. I’m excited to get to work with the organization to help people and communities realize their hopes and dreams.”

Crowley, a lifelong resident of the city of Milwaukee, was elected in 2016 to the Wisconsin Assembly’s 17th District that encompasses much of Milwaukee’s northwest side. Currently the ranking member on the Assembly Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee, Crowley also serves as Chair of the Wisconsin Legislative Black Caucus as well as Chair of the Milwaukee Democratic Legislative Caucus.

WHEDA board members include the Secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Administration (or designee), the CEO of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation, and six public members nominated by the governor and appointed by the state Senate. In addition, one state senator of each party and one representative to the state assembly of each party serve on the WHEDA board.  Members serve staggered four-year terms.

For over 45 years, WHEDA, as an independent state authority, has provided low-cost financing for housing and small business development in Wisconsin.  Since 1972, WHEDA has financed more than 73,000 affordable rental units, helped more than 129,600 families purchase a home and made more than 29,000 small business and agricultural loan guarantees.  For more information on WHEDA programs, visit wheda.com or call 800-334-6873.
