Long time NLIHC staff member Linda Couch has resigned to become the new Director of Housing Policy at Leading Age, the national association of homes and services for the elderly. Linda most recently served as Senior Vice President for Policy for NLIHC. Except for three years in the early 2000s when she previously worked at Leading Age, Linda has been with NLIHC since 1995. She is well known to NLIHC members and Capitol Hill staffers for her expertise on the federal budget and HUD programs that serve the lowest income people. NLIHC board and staff are grateful for her service and wish her well in her new endeavors.
