The MTW Steering Committee, on behalf of the MTW public housing agencies, has selected Nicole Barrett to serve as its first MTW Program Manager to lead research, policy analysis, and advocacy for the MTW program. The position will be managed by CLPHA in support of the MTW agencies.
In addition to her three years working at CLPHA as a Research & Policy Analyst, Nicole has been a policy advocate for the National Housing Trust, a management assistant in the Office of Congressional and Intergovernmental Relations at HUD, and a legislative intern in Congress.
Yesterday, CLPHA and counsel Reno & Cavanaugh submitted public comments in opposition to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) proposed rulemaking titled “Inadmissibility on Public Charge Grounds” (83 FR 51114) (the “Notice”). The Notice proposes to expand the basis upon which a non-citizen seeking adjustments to their residency or visa status are likely to become a “public charge.”
