Todd A. Lee

Todd A. Lee became the Executive Director & CEO of the DC Housing Finance Agency in April 2016.   He was not only the leader of the Agency but a trailblazer in the greater Washington, D.C. community. Mr. Lee had a passion for making lasting, meaningful impacts on the lives of everyone he met and he brought that energy to his work at DCHFA daily.

As the Executive Director & CEO of DCHFA, Mr. Lee focused on innovation, infrastructure and process improvements, and new product development. During his tenure, Mr. Lee launched new affordable multifamily financing solutions, single family mortgage products and workforce housing investment strategies. Under Mr. Lee’s leadership, there has been over $1 billion invested in the creation and preservation of affordable multifamily rental and workforce housing units in addition to supporting homeownership opportunities in all eight wards of the District.

Mr. Lee was the driving force behind the Agency’s initiatives and his unwavering support, endless laughter and always positive attitude are greatly missed.  DCHFA became the District’s only HUD Level I Risk Share lender, launched the Housing Investment Platform, DC MAP, ReMIT and most recently DC4Me all under Mr. Lee’s directorship.

Mr. Lee cultivated a team culture at the Agency and oversaw DCHFA’s rebranding in 2018 that included a revision of the mission and the development of the first Statement of Values. One those values is Community Focus from which he created DCHFA’s Community Engagement Initiative, a fund that supports seniors, youth, sports, education and arts programs in the District.
