Last month, Gregory Russ stepped down as chair of the New York City Housing Authority’s (NYCHA) board of directors, as well as CLPHA’s board.
During his tenure at NYCHA Greg oversaw the launch of NYCHA’s ambitious Blueprint for Change, a groundbreaking plan to recapitalize NYCHA's housing portfolio and improve living conditions and resident services. Learn more about the Blueprint for Change in our July 2022 interview with Greg and our November 2022 episode of CLPHA’s To the Point podcast.
Greg is a well-respected leader and pioneer in the public housing industry, and he was first elected to CLPHA’s board in 2007 when he led the Cambridge Housing Authority. Greg also served on CLPHA’s board while he was the Minneapolis Public Housing Authority’s executive director from 2017 to 2019, and has previously worked at HUD and the Cambridge Housing Authority. Greg has long been an integral, innovative voice in our membership, and CLPHA is thankful for his decades of leadership and expertise on our board and wishes him well in his future endeavors!
