President Joseph R. Biden Jr. on Wednesday announced his intent to nominate Adrianne Todman as Deputy Secretary for Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
Adrianne Todman is currently the CEO of the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials (NAHRO).
Before joining NAHRO in 2017, Todman served as the Executive Director of the District of Columbia Housing Authority (DCHA) and served in several career positions at HUD. First, as a manager of HUD’s $500 million grant competition that focused on the redevelopment of distressed public housing sites, then as a policy aide in both the Office of Public and Indian Housing, and the Office of the Secretary where she worked with staff across HUD’s programs on policy solutions and streamlining implementation.
The White House said she is widely recognized for her accomplishments in the affordable housing industry. She also served as a legislative director in then-Congressman Ron de Lugo’s office, a long-serving delegate representing the U.S. Virgin Islands where Todman was born and raised. She is a graduate of Smith College and serves as a Trustee. She lives in Washington, D.C.
