Affordable housing developer joins Green Bank board

Speaker of the House Joe Aresimowicz has appointed an affordable housing and finance expert to the board of directors of the quasi-public Connecticut Green Bank.

Betsy Crum fills a board seat vacated by Patricia Wrice, who recently retired as executive director of the nonprofit Operation Fuel.

Crum has been executive director of the Women's Institute for Housing & Economic Development since 2015. She previously led the Connecticut Housing Coalition and before that was Director of Real Estate for the Women's Institute for Housing & Economic Development.

"The legislature created Connecticut Green Bank in 2011 to attract private investment in clean energy and provide increased access to more affordable financing for clean energy projects," Aresimowicz said in a statement. "Betsy's appointment should help the Green Bank with expanding their markets. It is important they let residents and businesses in all locations know there are opportunities in clean energy throughout Connecticut."

Catherine Smith, commissioner of the Department of Economic and Community Development, chairs the board.
