November 17, 2022
MADISON – Elmer Moore, Jr., chief executive officer of the Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority, has gained national honors with his appointment to the Community Investment Advisory Council of the Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago.
Through his appointment to the Community Investment Advisory Council of the Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago, Moore will work with other council members from Wisconsin and Illinois to advise the bank on ways in which it can better carry out its housing finance and community investment mission. The Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago, which covers Wisconsin and Illinois, is one of 11 Federal Home Loan Banks chartered by Congress to promote homeownership.
“I am truly honored to serve on this advisory council to make a difference in the lives of those who are seeking a safe and stable home to live in and prosper,” Moore said. “I am grateful to the Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago for this opportunity.”
Moore’s expertise stems from his years serving as the Executive Director of Scale Up Milwaukee for the Greater Milwaukee Committee where he created public-private partnerships that resulted in over 1,400 jobs created for more than 200 Wisconsin organizations and secured more than $60M in new capital investments. Moore was appointed as WHEDA’s CEO and executive director by Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers in April 2022.
He serves as a member of the Governor’s Council on Financial Literacy, as president of the WHEDA Foundation and as a board member of the Social Development Commission in Milwaukee.
