NYT On Cuomo's Tenure at HUD Misses Boat by Focusing ONLY on Homeownership.

Story is HERE

Telling that there is virtually NO discussion of rental housing program expansions (primarily "incremental" and "welfare to work" vouchers) under Cuomo; this was clearly one of his biggest accomplishments as HUD Secretary.

Whether one "liked" his personal style there is no doubt that under Cuomo both HUD and Oregon saw the largest expansions in HUD rental assistance in the last 30 years.

Full disclosure: I was appointed as Senior Community Builder for Oregon in 1998 during Cuomo's service as HUD Secretary.
