Louise Carroll, Class of 2016 Fellow, is been a proponent of affordable housing in NYC with her work on the Inclusionary Housing Program at HPD.

“We retooled the preservation program,” said Louise Carroll, associate commissioner for housing incentives of the Department of Housing Preservation and Development. “The key here for the Prince George is the location.
