QUINCY — Two Rivers Regional Council of Public Officials recently promoted Elaine Davis to the position of housing coordinator as part of the Community Development Department with the organization.

The housing coordinator position was created in response to the housing issues and needs in the organization’s service area. Davis has been with Two Rivers Regional Council of Public Officials for more than 40 years. This new position will allow Davis to focus on the housing needs of the area and put all her efforts into finding solutions for those in need of assistance with housing.

Davis has been spearheading efforts for affordable, safe and sustainable housing for the organization and Quincy for 20 years while also serving as a case manager in the workforce development department. She worked with the city in 2002 to develop the Quincy Housing Initiative, a housing program for low-income home buyers that earned national recognition. She also was involved in the development of a home ownership/walk to work program with Blessing Hospital that was used as the groundwork of a statewide program with the Illinois Housing Development Authority helping
employees with down payment assistance.

Davis says her immediate focus will include rental and mortgage assistance, safe and affordable housing, improving the housing stock and homeowner counseling.

To speak with Davis about the new position and how TRRC plans to address the housing needs of Adams, Pike, Brown, and Schuyler counties, contact Mark Schneider, marketing coordinator with Two Rivers Regional Council, at (217) 224-8171 Ext 120.
