The Board recognized Minnesota Housing Commissioner Mary Tingerthal’s appointment of Amy McCulloch, Deputy Director at Twin Cities Local Initiatives Support Corporation (Twin Cities LISC) for a four-year term and George Stone, former Director of Minnesota CSH, for a three-year term.
The Board and staff gratefully acknowledged the contributions of three departing members. Charles Hanley, Vice President/District Manager at U.S. Bank, left the Board after 12 years of service. Andriana Abariotes, Executive Director of Twin Cities LISC, left the Board after nine years of service.

The Family Housing Fund can have up to 24 members. As a supporting organization of government, the FHFund Board is made up of both elected and appointed members. The FHFund Board elects eight members. The City of Minneapolis, City of Saint Paul, Metropolitan Council, and Minnesota Housing appoint four members each. The Board recognizes these appointments. This unique structure positions FHFund with the broad support and expertise necessary to help communities meet their affordable housing needs.
