Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh officially appointed Kate Bennett the administrator of the Boston Housing Authority last week. Bennett had been named acting administrator following the retirement and passing of longtime BHA Administrator Bill McGonagle. Bennett joined BHA in 1998 as a senior planner and previously served as the housing authority’s senior deputy administrator.

"Kate brings a wealth of experience to this role. She has worked closely on the BHA's preservation and redevelopment initiatives, as well as with resident leaders to further expand resident empowerment throughout the organization," said Mayor Walsh. "I am excited to have her on board to help continue to lead the BHA's efforts forward to house our most vulnerable families throughout the city."

"I am excited to step into this role and work with our residents, City partners, and the broader community on the critical work of strengthening and preserving deeply affordable housing opportunities within the City," said Bennett.

CLPHA congratulates Ms. Bennett on her appointment and looks forward to continuing working with her.
