In her capacity as a Executive Vice President with the National Fair Housing Alliance, Ms. Rice oversees the marketing, communications, resource development, public policy and enforcement initiatives of the agency. She is responsible for helping to achieve the organization’s goal of addressing the crisis of segregation in America and the ultimate goal of realizing a truly open society. Lisa joined NFHA in 2006 after serving as CEO of the Toledo Fair Housing Center and the Northwest Ohio Development Agency (NODA). The Fair Housing Center is one of the nation’s premier fair housing organizations. NODA, which Lisa helped to found, is a community development financial institution providing below-market interest loans, grants and financial services to historically under- served markets. While serving at the organizations, Lisa developed and implemented the state of Ohio’s first predatory lending remediation program.
