Grey appointed new homelessness officer
Monday, January 11, 2021 by Elizabeth Pagano
The city of Austin announced the hiring of a new homelessness strategy officer just before the end of 2020. Dianna Grey began her new job coordinating the city’s continued efforts to end homelessness on Jan. 4. A memo from City Manager Spencer Cronk announced the hiring and explained Grey had come from working at her own consulting firm, which has contracted with the city on the issue of permanent supportive housing. Prior to that, the LBJ School graduate was the director of the Texas Office of Corporation for Supportive Housing, “where she coordinated public policy efforts, provided technical assistance, and advised on capacity building programming and project financing across the state, with a specialized focus on Dallas, Ft. Worth, Austin, and Houston.” Lori Pampilo Harris, who was the city’s first homelessness strategy officer, served in the position for one month before stepping down in October 2019.
