((NASDAQ: RP) General Manager of Affordable Housing Gustavo Sapiurka, was among a select group invited by The White House Domestic Policy Council that participated in a Stakeholder Meeting on July 27 on Aligning Administrative Requirements for Federal Affordable Rental Housing Programs.
The White House Domestic Policy Council, together with the U.S. Departments of Agriculture, Housing and Urban Development, and the Treasury, hosted the stakeholder meeting to discuss progress being made to better align federally funded affordable rental housing programs. The meeting also reviewed two new pilot programs that will be tested in 10 states associated with owning and developing affordable rental housing.
“I am honored to have been invited to participate in this important meeting,” said Sapiurka. “The dialogue was very productive and provided a better framework about the efforts underway with federally funded affordable rental housing programs. This is a very important issue that affects millions of individuals who rely on affordable housing. I look forward to seeing the results of the Administration’s pilot programs which will look at ways to make owning, managing and developing affordable rental housing more attractive. We support all of these initiatives that will help owners and property managers better serve their residents and maintain compliance with federal regulations.”
Sapiurka has more than 24 years of experience in affordable housing. He has responsibility at RealPage for all of the company’s affordable housing solutions. Sapiurka has also been active in the affordable housing industry as a member of community-sponsored task forces dealing with automation issues and as an active member of many non-profit organizations.
