Adam Rose

Director of partnerships and growth | Travois

My education and past experiences help me help clients. My master’s degree in urban planning from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, my bachelor’s in political science from Marquette and my Housing Credit Certified Professional (HCCP) designation from the National Association of Homebuilders are important tools.

Before I finished school, I spent a year volunteering for relief efforts in Pass Christian, Mississippi, a town destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. I lived in a tent and helped coordinate temporary housing for displaced residents. I saw how quality housing is a basic necessity for a community’s stability and growth.

But my experience growing up in a big family is my most important qualification. I have 35 first cousins. At the end of the day, our work is about serving families. I love working in Indian Country because tribes and Tribally Designated Housing Entities (TDHEs) put people first.

I love to work with TDHEs and tribal leaders at a high level. I can help you communicate with your community to gain buy-in for the affordable housing and community development concepts that best serve your families. I travel all over the country helping build consensus around these visions for new housing and economic development. My specific experience includes structuring Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) projects, securing Affordable Housing Program (AHP) grants, closing Title VI loans and finding ways to solve financing gaps using the New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) program.

You can tell me where you want to go: rental housing, homeownership, or a comprehensive mixed-use development. It is my job to help you develop a plan to get to your destination.

Call Travois any time so we can set up a conversation that moves your development forward.
