A change of leadership has been announced at the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) and the California Housing Finance Agency (CalHFA).
Claudia Cappio has been appointed director of HCD, and Tia Boatman-Patterson has been appointed executive director of CalHFA.
The moves were announced by Gov. Jerry Brown. Both positions require state Senate confirmation.
Cappio, 60, will take over HCD after leading CalHFA since 2011. Recently, she has been helping steer both agencies.
She was founder and managing principal of Sparticles, a planning and development consulting firm from 2008 to 2011. Cappio also served as director of planning, building, and major projects for the Oakland Base Reuse Authority from 2000 to 2007. At HCD, the compensation will be $157,707, according to a statement from Brown’s office.
Boatman-Patterson, 47, has been general counsel at the Sacramento Housing and Redevelopment Agency since 2009. She served as special assistant to California State Assembly Speaker Karen Bass from 2008 to 2009. Her new post will pay $174,996.
Earlier, William Pavao announced that he will leave his post as executive director of the California Tax Credit Allocation Committee in January, which coincides with the end of state Treasurer Bill Lockyer’s term.
