OlyCAP director to serve on state housing panel

A director at Olympic Community Action Programs has been selected to serve on a state panel dealing with affordable housing.

Kathy Morgan, housing programs director at Olympic Community Action Programs (OlyCAP), will serve on the Policy Advisory Team (PAT) for the Washington State Housing Trust Fund.

“Morgan’s three-year appointment will provide the Olympic Peninsula with a direct voice in the development of housing policy, rules and regulations that guide administration of the Housing Trust Fund,” the state’s primary resource for development of affordable housing, said Dale Wilson, OlyCAP executive director.

“Kathy’s appointment to the Advisory Team is an acknowledgement of her commitment to the development of affordable housing both here at home and across the state,” Wilson said.

“For the first time in a long time, the Olympic Peninsula will have a representative voice on the PAT and will help guide affordable housing policy that will reflect rural conditions and priorities.”

The PAT consists of people representing an array of housing and social interests that share a common interest in low-income housing development.

The PAT serves as a subcommittee to the Governor’s Affordable Housing Advisory Board. Its primary purpose is to review administrative policies and procedures related to the Housing Trust Fund and to make recommendations to the state Department of Commerce on how to improve and advance affordable housing development.
