Jeffrey Lubell becomes head of Center for Housing Policy.
Lubell succeeds Robert J. Reid who had served as head of the Center since 1993 and as executive director of NHC, the nation's premier public policy and housing advocacy organization, from 1993 to 2002. Reid has moved on to become general manager of NHC's 2006 75th Anniversary Celebration.
Lubell most recently worked as an independent consultant specializing in analyzing and developing recommendations for strengthening national, state and local housing and community development policy. He has an in-depth knowledge of U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development programs and an understanding of how these programs intersect with welfare and other anti-poverty programs, after serving as the director of the policy development division of the Office of Policy Development and Research at HUD. In this position, Lubell provided detailed guidance to HUD's program offices and leadership on housing and community development issues, supervised HUD's strategic planning process and prepared and reviewed draft regulations, legislation and research reports.
"Jeffrey Lubell's wide-ranging experience in housing and community development, combined with his broad knowledge of the related policies and issues shaping the nation, will help ensure that the Center's future research adjusts to the ever-changing dynamics in affordable housing," said Center chairman Ann B. Schnare, president of A.B. Schnare Associates. "We look forward to his significant contributions to the Center and the affordable housing community at large."
Prior to HUD, Lubell worked as a housing policy analyst with the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, a nonprofit organization that is one of the leading independent authorities on programs affecting low-income families. While at CBPP he was responsible for analyzing federal housing legislation, providing comments and testimony on proposed low-income housing regulations, briefing senior staff within the Administration and Congress, supervising research, providing expert commentary to the press, preparing and publishing articles and conducting speaking engagements nationwide.
Lubell is a graduate of Harvard Law School and Harvard College.
