Former White House top housing advisor named BPC Fellow

Michael Stegman joins BPC from Obama administration

The Bipartisan Policy Center announced today that Michael Stegman is joining the organization as a fellow for housing policy.

BPC is a non-profit organization that combines ideas from both parties to promote health, security and opportunity for all Americans. The organization drives policy solutions through analysis, negotiation and advocacy.

"We are excited to have Mike join the BPC as a fellow," BPC President Jason Grumet said. "BPC’s Housing Commission was instrumental in moving the housing finance reform debate forward as well as shining a light on the need for affordable housing.”

“Mike’s deep experience and knowledge will be crucial to building on the Commission’s work," Grumet said.

Stegman joins BPC from the Obama Administration, where he served as a senior housing advisor at the National Economic Council and the Treasury Department.

Stegman left his position at the White House on March 25, however the reason why he left was not released.

He brings a distinguished career in housing policy to BPC. In addition to his recent time at the White House, he also served as assistant secretary for policy development and research at the Department of Housing and Urban Development and was a member of the Welfare Reform Working Group during the Clinton administration.

"The country continues to struggle to meet the housing needs of all Americans,” BPC Housing Commission Co-chair Henry Cisneros said. "I have tremendous respect for Mike Stegman's expertise, analytical skills, and dedication to the public interest.”

“His position at the Bipartisan Policy Center will allow the nation to continue to benefit from his impressive experience," Cisneros said.

In addition, Stegman is a professor emeritus, an honorary title given to some professors, at the University of North Carolina at Chapil Hill, where he taught and conducted research on affordable housing policy.

While Stegman was known for playing a large role in affordable housing, his name has also come up quite a bit in regards to ending the conservatorship of Fannie Mae andFreddie Mac.
