Very sad news…

Phil Holmes, Director of the HUD Multifamily Program Center at the Manchester Field Office, died tragically in a motorcycle accident last night in New Hampshire. A long-time friend and supporter of affordable housing in Vermont and throughout Northern New England, Phil had been at HUD since the early 1990’s, around the time of the completion of the Northgate Rehab. Phil had been very active with the Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont Housing Manager Associations over the years and was a good friend to many of the owners, managers and agency people he worked with on HUD issues and housing policy. He was a strong advocate of HUD’s Risk Share insurance program and expansion of Computer Learning Centers in HUD’s assisted housing. Most recently, Phil was closely involved with the Vergennes Senior Housing project, where many of us saw him at the ribbon cutting only a few short weeks ago. Folks who knew him through his work with Northgate especially appreciated his strong support for its unique resident ownership model. Phil will be sorely missed by his many friends and colleagues in Vermont.  ————————————————————————————————————————— HOOKSETT, N.H. — Hooksett police said one man was killed in accident that shut down a section of Route 3 for several hours Wednesday night.  Police said the accident happened around 9 p.m. on Hooksett Road, also known as Route 3.
