William Mulrow on Wednesday began his tenure as chairman of the New York State Housing Finance Agency and the State of New York Mortgage Agency, two of the agencies included within New York State Homes and Community Renewal.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo appointed Mulrow and the Senate confirmed his appointment on March 19.

Mulrow said that despite the economic downturn, the HFA has remained one of the most dynamic agencies in the nation.

“[These are] two of the most reputable agencies for decades, so we’re going to continue a lot of the good work that has been going on,” he said.

The HFA has a bond sale of up to $370 million of tax-exempt variable-rate bonds scheduled for April, but Mulrow said there are no further details at this time.
