When the Washington Business Journal announced its HR Impact Award honorees, WCCD member Heather Hart was on the list! For the past seven years Heather has served as the the Director of Human Resources at the DC Housing Finance Agency (DCHFA).

Among the Agency’s 50 staff members Heather is known for her hands on approach and daily office visits. During her check-ins she assesses the needs of the staff. Heather learned that several staff members were grappling with student loan debt which was preventing them from contributing to their retirement fund, buying a home or establishing a college fund for their children. Her solution was to launch the CHOICE Education Finance program at DCHFA. The agency contributes toward an employee’s student loan or to a 529 College Savings plan.

The implementation of the program received the 2019 Management Innovation-HR award from the National Council of State Housing Agencies. The wellness program that Heather created at DCHFA was a finalist in the Ragan’s Employee Communications awards.

We are WCCD proud of you Heather!
