In their announcement of Sheila’s induction, Affordable Housing Finance stated: “Crowley has worked to continue the organization’s mission of ensuring affordable and decent homes for the nation’s lowest-income households. She has grown the NLIHC’s staff, expanded the organization’s signature Out of Reach housing costs report to cover every county in the nation, and has been at the forefront of getting the National Housing Trust Fund enacted and funded.”
In addition to being featured in the October issue of Affordable Housing Finance, Sheila and the other inductees will be recognized at the AFH Live: The 2015 Affordable Housing Developers Summit, which will be held November 18-20 at the Fairmont Millennium Park in Chicago.
