Kate Rodrigues joins NLIHC as a new research intern for the spring semester. Originally from the Minneapolis-St. Paul area and with a B.A. in English and Political Science from the College of Saint Benedict, Kate has spent the last five years working in the property management industry. Her exposure to both housing choice voucher programs and LIHTC properties sparked an interest in shifting to a career in housing policy and advocacy efforts. She hopes to pursue a graduate degree in urban and regional planning in the near future.
