New Asset Manager
We are pleased to share that RIHousing has hired Marilyn DaPonte as our new Asset Manager! In this position, Marilyn will be handling both the PBCA and Asset Management side of her portfolio. Marilyn has been with RIHousing for 16 years and recently served as a Compliance Specialist overseeing compliance for the RI Continuum of Care program. Prior to that, Marilyn spent several years as a supervisor in the HCVP, Contract Administrator (CA) for PBCA and Multifamily Compliance Specialist for LIHTC. She is a fantastic addition to the team!
With this new addition, we have redistributed our portfolios so that all Management companies now have the same CA. If there was a change to your assigned CA, you should have received an email from your new CA earlier this month notifying you of any change.
