WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) met with Ohio fair housing advocates including, Amy Albery, a Granville resident. Albery works for Wallick Communities, an organization that provides affordable housing for low-income families and seniors. Albery was joined by Bill Hinga, a fellow Wallick Communities employee; Guy Ford, director of legislative affairs for the Ohio Housing Finance Agency; and Jennifer Schwartz, assistant director for tax policy and advocacy for the National Council of State Housing Agencies. The group attended Brown’s weekly coffee with constituents while in Washington D.C.

“It was an honor to meet with Amy,” Brown said. “Her advocacy helps make affordable housing a reality for more Ohioans.”

Brown, who serves as ranking member of the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs, continues to support polices that help provide fair and affordable housing. In March, Brown announced new federal resources to provide rental assistance for low-income Ohioans with disabilities through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Section 811 Project Rental Assistance program.
