MassHousing’s David Keene has been elected to serve a one-year term as vice president on the National Leased Housing Association Board of Directors.

Keene, the agency’s chief preservation officer, will assist the NLHA in its mission of providing its members with information and advocacy concerning low and moderate-income rental housing.

Keene has been at MassHousing for 27 years. During that time, he has overseen more than $1 billion in refinancing for rental housing, tax credit recapitalizations and other loan transactions, as well as more than $500 million in annual Section 8 subsidies.

Prior to joining MassHousing, Keene worked in New York, Washington and Texas in the area of affordable housing and received a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in city planning from the University of Pennsylvania.

“David Keene is a nationally recognized expert in state and federal programs involving subsidized rental housing,” said MassHousing Executive Director Thomas R. Gleason. “His expertise will benefit thousands of people who rely on low and moderate-income housing.”

The NLHA has helped obtain necessary legislative and regulatory changes affecting federally related housing and tax policy for more than 40 years, according to the organization.
