NLIHC is pleased to welcome Nada Hussein as project coordinator with the End Rental Arrears to Stop Evictions (ERASE) team. In this role, Nada will work to advance the Coalition’s mission by ensuring that the historic emergency rental assistance funding appropriated by Congress reaches the lowest-income and most marginalized renters.
Nada joins NLIHC with an extensive background in both public policy and research. Prior to joining NLIHC, she worked with the North Carolina League of Municipalities, where she crafted training programs and drafted reports on homeownership, inequality, and poverty to educate local elected officials about ways to close the Black and Hispanic homeownership gap across the state. In her most recent role, Nada worked with the North Carolina Justice Center, conducting research into how local governing bodies across the state could use the funds received from the “American Rescue Plan Act” to support renters at risk of eviction.
Nada received her undergraduate degree in political science and sustainability studies from the University of Florida. She holds a master’s degree in public policy from the Sanford School of Public Policy at Duke University, where she concentrated in social policy.
Please join us in welcoming Nada to NLIHC!
