In this episode of GovTech Talks, we are joined by Bradley Ray Sweazy, the Former Interim Director and COO of the Louisiana Housing Corporation (LHC). Sweazy talks about the difficulty his team experienced managing tens of thousands applicants a day via manual data entries and how Quickbase is helping them manage data entries to help connect low income families with affordable housing options.
Established in 2011, the goal of the LHC is to administer funds through programs that assist in the development of energy-efficient housing for low-to-middle-income families. The LHC oversees the Disaster Housing Task Force for Louisiana as well.
Sweazy served as the COO and Interim Director of the LHC for over five years. His first introduction to Quickbase was through the Emergency Rental Assistance program, which was designed to help households pay rent through the Covid crisis. Quickbase allowed his team to successfully manage 40,000 applicants per day.
