Washington, D.C. – The Bipartisan Policy Center today announced that Dr. Michael Stegman is joining the organization as a fellow for housing policy. Stegman joins BPC from the Obama administration, where he served as a senior housing advisor at both the National Economic Council and the Treasury Department.
Stegman brings to BPC a distinguished career in housing policy. In addition to his recent public service, Stegman served as assistant secretary for policy development and research at the Department of Housing and Urban Development and was a member of the Welfare Reform Working Group during the Clinton administration.
“We are excited to have Mike join the BPC as a fellow,” said BPC President Jason Grumet. “BPC’s Housing Commission was instrumental in moving the housing finance reform debate forward as well as shining a light on the need for affordable housing. Mike’s deep experience and knowledge will be crucial to building on the Commission’s work.”
“The country continues to struggle to meet the housing needs of all Americans,” said BPC Housing Commission Co-Chair Henry Cisneros. “I have tremendous respect for Mike Stegman’s expertise, analytical skills, and dedication to the public interest. His position at the Bipartisan Policy Center will allow the nation to continue to benefit from his impressive experience.”
