National Leased Housing Association
Denise B. Muha serves as the Executive Director of the National Leased Housing Association (NLHA), a post she has held since 1988. The National Leased Housing Association is a membership organization involved in the development, management and administration of federally assisted rental housing for persons of low and moderate incomes.
In addition to overseeing the day-to-day operations of the Association, Ms. Muha works with NLHA's 500 member organizations to formulate policy on issues impacting the assisted multifamily rental housing industry and represents these positions before HUD and Congress.
In her role as Executive Director, Muha has presented testimony to various congressional committees including the Senate Banking Committee and the House Financial Services Committee on numerous affordable housing issues.
Muha was a key player in the development of landmark housing legislation that addressed the preservation of over 1.5 million units of affordable housing developed under the Section 8 program. She recently was successful in encouraging Congress to pass and the President to enact legislation to thwart administrative burdens that reduce investment in low income rental housing.
