National Low Income Housing Coalition names new president

Diane Yentel to replace Sheila Crowley

Today National Low Income Housing Coalition’s board of directors named a new president

Diane Yentel, an affordable housing policy expert and advocate, will replace current President and CEO Sheila Crowley in April, when Crowley will retire. 

Yentel is currently the Vice President of Public Policy and Government Affairs of Enterprise Community Partners. She leads its federal, state and local policy, research and advocacy programs. Previously, she has worked at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development in the Office of Public and Indian Housing directing policy development and implementation for the Public Housing program, as well as Senior Domestic Policy Advisor for Oxfam America

"I am honored by the opportunity to build on years of creating transformative public policy to help achieve NLIHC's vision of assuring the lowest income people in our country have decent and affordable homes," Yentel said. "Given the extraordinary leadership of Sheila Crowley and the talented and dedicated board and staff at NLIHC, I have a tremendous foundation from which to sustain and expand our impact."

Yentel’s first job in Washington was for NLIHC, where she worked as a policy analyst. During time there, Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast, displacing hundreds of thousands of people and damaging much of the region’s low cost housing stock. Yentel led NLIHC’s efforts to advocate for a federal response by both Congress and the Administration. 

“Speaking on behalf of our entire board, I could not be more pleased that Diane will be the new head of NLIHC,” said Brenda Clement, Chair of the NLIHC Board. “She has the right combination of leadership skills, policy expertise, political savvy, and commitment to housing justice to be a perfect fit for our coalition. The people in our country who lack decent and affordable homes will be well served by NLIHC under Diane’s direction.”
