Vancouver, WA – Pete Munroe, program manager for Clark County’s Housing and Community Development Program, was honored with the Roy D. Hoover Award last week by the National Association for County Community and Economic Development.

The award recognizes an individual who exhibits qualities of the late Roy D. Hoover, former director of the Department of Urban Affairs for Los Angeles County, Calif. It has been presented to only 15 people in the 38-year history of the organization.

The award spotlights a person who has made extraordinary contributions to county government, the association and the housing, community development and economic development profession.

Munroe was honored for his achievements in affordable housing and national community and economic development programs. His leadership at state and local levels has improved life for low- and moderate-income people.

In Munroe’s nearly 30 years with the association, he served on the Board of Directors and was chair of the Housing Committee, secretary/treasurer, vice-president and president. Most recently, Munroe has been chair of the Ethics Committee.

The association also honored Clark County for its support of the Housing Solution Center, run by the Council for the Homeless. It helps homeless people find appropriate housing. The county received the Award of Excellence in the category of homeless coordination and assistance.

Clark County’s Housing and Community Development Program includes community development block grant, affordable housing, community action, homeless programs, local veteran’s assistance and low-income home energy assistance programs.
