 MARVIN SIFLINGER ELECTED PRESIDENT OF NATIONAL HOUSING GROUP
 BOSTON, Sept. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Marvin Siflinger, executive director of the Massachusetts Housing Finance Agency (MHFA), was elected president of the National Council of State Housing Agencies (NCSHA) last week at the group's annual conference in Chicago. NCSHA is a national nonprofit organization based in Washington, D.C., which was created in 1970 to assist its member housing and finance agencies in advancing the interests of lower-income people through the financing, development and preservation of affordable housing. NCSHA members operate in every state and collectively operate more than 600 affordable housing programs.
 According to Siflinger, priorities for NCSHA during this period include achieving permanent extensions for the federally authorized Mortgage Revenue Bond and Low Income Housing Tax Credit programs, and reauthorization and full funding of the HOME Investment Partnerships program.
 "These programs are critical to each of the 46 housing finance agencies that belong to NCSHA and seek to assist low- and moderate- income families across the U.S.," said Siflinger, a former vice president of NCSHA, who will serve a one-year term as president.
 As MHFA executive director since 1983, Siflinger has been responsible for overseeing a $4.4 billion loan portfolio which includes 50,000 rental units and 25,000 single-family mortgages.
 Before joining MHFA, Siflinger worked for 22 years in various positions at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), where he was recognized for excellence in the areas of housing production and management, and as an outstanding administrator. He ended his tenure at HUD as manager of the Boston Area Office.
 Siflinger is the recipient of numerous awards, including the 1991 NCHSA Leadership Award and the 1989 Robert S. Swain, Jr., Distinguished Service Award from the Real Estate Finance Division of the Greater Boston Real Estate Board. In 1979, he was appointed by the president as Charter Member of HUD's Senior Executive Service.
 Siflinger is a board member of the National Housing Conference, National Housing Trust, Massachusetts Housing Investment Corporation, and the Metropolitan Boston Housing Partnership. He also is a member of the Federal National Mortgage Association's National Housing Impact Advisory Council, and previously served as vice chairman of the Affordable Housing Council of the Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston in 1991.
 A graduate of the City University of New York and of Syracuse University, where he received a master's degree in public administration, Siflinger is an adjunct faculty member of the master's in public administration program at Northeastern University.
