Federal City Council Executive Kevin Clinton Named as Washington Housing Conservancy’s New Board Chair
The Washington Housing Conservancy, an innovative nonprofit organization that focuses on preserving affordable housing to prevent displacement and promoting economic opportunity for moderate and low-income residents in the Washington, DC region, has unanimously elected current Board member and Federal City Council executive, Kevin Clinton to serve as Chair. He succeeds outgoing Chair, David Roodberg who will remain on the Board.
Clinton, whose career has focused on envisioning, directing, and realizing economic and social impact in non-profits, start-ups and turnarounds, helped to launch WHC in 2018. Clinton currently serves as Chief Program Officer at Federal City Council where he has broad responsibility and accountability for the overall growth, performance and impact of the organization in fulfilling its mission to be a catalyst for progress in Washington, DC. He leads the organization’s education, workforce, transportation, and economy programs by incubating new initiatives and forming innovative partnerships.
“Kevin has been with WHC from the beginning, helping to incubate and grow the organization as we work to disrupt the market forces that make it so challenging to preserve housing that is affordable to our essential workers and create thriving, inclusive mixed-income communities where people forge connections with their neighbors and have opportunities to build wealth. He brings to our organization a deep passion for our mission, a keen understanding of the political, social, and economic dynamics of Washington, D.C. and an understanding of housing policy. And we thank outgoing Chair, David Roodberg, for his leadership,” said Kimberly Driggins, Executive Director of the Washington Housing Conservancy.
