Moss Honored for Affordable Housing Commitment
In recognition of his 22-year commitment to affordable rental housing, NAHB has named Robert C. Moss, senior vice president of Boston Capital, the 2007 recipient of its Daniel B. Grady Memorial Award. The award was presented to Moss during the association’s recent fall board of directors meeting in Seattle.
"This award was named in honor of the memory of a long-time NAHB member who advocated tirelessly for quality housing for those who can least afford it, and Bob Moss truly demonstrates the meaning of this award," said Granger D. MacDonald, president of the MacDonald Companies and chairman of NAHB's Multifamily Board of Trustees. "Bob has devoted the majority of his career to the affordable housing industry and has done so with a true sense of integrity and social responsibility."
Boston Capital is a real estate investment company that has been a leader and innovator in financing affordable housing, particularly through the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program. Moss joined the company in 1993, and since that time has originated more than $1 billion in tax credit equity and debt. He is responsible for state agency relationships and policy development and developer opportunities and applications, and he directs his company’s Origination Department effort nationally.
Moss has served on the NAHB Legislative Affairs Committee as well as on the steering committee of the Housing Credit Group, which works to promote and protect the LIHTC program.
Moss also has served as a consultant to developers, non-profit organizations and government agencies on how best to use programs such as the Low Income Housing Tax Credit.
He serves on the boards of the New York State Association for Affordable Housing, the National Leased Housing Association, The Florida Housing Coalition, the National Housing & Rehabilitation Association and Illinois Housing Council. He also serves on the advisory boards of more than 20 state agencies responsible for allocating housing tax credits.
