“I’m delighted to join DCHFA in championing high-quality housing opportunities for the District’s residents while paving the way for new business opportunities,” he said in a prepared statement.

Before coming to DCHFA, Ervin served as the director of development at the Housing Opportunities Commission of Montgomery County, Md., where he was responsible for acquiring and developing a portfolio of approximately 7,000 high-quality, sustainable rental housing units.

This included building communities through new construction and overseeing significant renovations to Low-Income Housing Tax Credit properties via re-syndication.
