Senate Confirms Julia Gordon As FHA Commissioner

By a vote of 51-50, the Senate last evening confirmed Julia Gordon as the next Assistant Secretary for Housing/Federal Housing Administration Commissioner.

Vice President Kamala Harris provided the tie-breaking vote.

“We congratulate Julia Gordon on her confirmation vote. Given her impressive housing background, she’s ideally suited to lead FHA. We look forward to working with the incoming commissioner and her key staff on several critical issues that need to be addressed in the HECM program over the coming weeks and months,” says NRMLA President Steve Irwin.

Most recently, Gordon served as president of the National Community Stabilization Trust, a non-profit organization that supports neighborhood revitalization and affordable homeownership.
