Monica Hilton Sussman is a former deputy general counsel for HUD. She brings nearly 30 years of experience in affordable housing, Section 8 and FHA multifamily programs. Monica represents developers in all types of affordable housing transactions and continues her strong relationship with HUD headquarters and regionally.
Much of my work involves helping clients preserve their properties to bring more value to the owners and the tenants. Owners and purchasers of older HUD-assisted or insured properties turn to me for advice on transactional and regulatory matters.
I’m in close contact with HUD officials as we work together to develop new policies to get deals done. These issues take me to Capitol Hill, state agencies and industry trade groups as well.
Speaking and networking at industry events and educating developers, investors, lenders and other industry participants is also a priority for me. I enjoy connecting with others who are passionate about this work and meeting new entrants to the market.
It appears that Congress will be squeezing funding for a long time and that means different things for different clients. Transforming and preserving public housing through RAD is part of the future.
