Katie wraps up her discussion with ChangeMaker, Griffin Hagle, the executive director of Alaska’s Taġiuġmiullu Nunamiullu Housing Authority, which manages affordable housing in the eight villages of the Arctic Slope region. The TNHA serves an area that stretches more than 600 miles (ca. 966 km) and is one of fourteen Regional Housing Authorities in Alaska, and the northernmost public housing entity in the United States.
About Griffin Hagle:
Griffin has served since 2018 as the executive director of Taġiuġmiullu Nunamiullu Housing Authority, a tribally designated agency operating affordable housing in the eight northernmost communities within the United States. He first took an interest in housing and redevelopment as a weatherization installer for a community action partnership in his hometown of Medford, Oregon in 2006. To this day, he is compelled by the need to close gaps—physically, in the built environment, as well as between communities and public policy. He lives in Anchorage, Alaska with his wife and son.
