HDA Leadership

Our Board of Directors, Executive Leadership & Program Staff

The Housing Development Alliance (HDA) is headed by an executive leadership team – led by Executive Director Scott McReynolds – and program staff that have given decades of service to the people of Appalachia and believe that no family should live in poverty and that every family has the right to own a high quality, long-lasting, affordable home.

The work of the Housing Development Alliance is overseen by a board of directors representing various aspects of the local community, including at least two members who are low-income. HDA’s board is responsible for establishing policy and guiding the Alliance’s work to build, repair, rehabilitate, develop, improve, and preserve housing in the southeastern Kentucky counties of Breathitt, Knott, Leslie, and Perry.

HDA Board of Directors Monthly Meetings

HDA's board meets on the last Thursday of each month at 5:30 p.m. in the conference room of HDA's office building on North Main Street in Hazard, KY.
