ConnectVA Spotlight: Matt Morgan, project:HOMES

Tell us about yourself. My name is Matt Morgan, I am the Deputy Director of Neighborhood Revitalization at project:HOMES. I started as an intern at project:HOMES about five years ago, and have held a variety of positions at the organization. In my current role, I manage the rehabilitation section of our Neighborhood Revitalization program, where we provide critical home repairs to low-income families in Richmond, Henrico, Chesterfield, Petersburg, Hopewell, Colonial Heights, and Norfolk. Our project managers assess the needs of a homeowner, ensuring that the home is safe, warm, and dry. I also work on pre-development and closings for the real estate side of our department, where we build up to 25 homes a year which are sold to low-income families. I graduated from VCU in 2012 with a Bachelor’s in History, and got a Master’s Degree in Urban and Environmental Planning from UVA in 2014.
