He has a proven track record of legislative and land use related accomplishments ranging from his work on the reauthorization of the New York State 421-a tax exemption, to increasing federal funding for HUD programs, to the rezoning of blocks and neighborhoods to spur the creation of new housing development and economic opportunity. Jordan capped his tenure at HPD as Executive Director for Development and Planning within the Government Affairs office, where he was responsible for working with the City Council, developers and across city agencies to gain approval of land use actions, rezonings, and tax exemptions. Prior to that role, he was Director of State and Federal Affairs for both HPD and the NYC Housing Development Corporation’s (HDC), responsible for passing the agencies’ legislative agenda in Albany and Washington, DC. An accomplished housing policy specialist, Jordan spent 6 years with the Corporation for Supportive Housing (CSH), and started his career in government working as a legislative assistant for financial services issues for his hometown congressman, Christopher Shays, of Connecticut.
