Luke is responsible for communicating MHP's program goals and accomplishments to current and potential funders. He has been with MHP since 2002, first as an AmeriCorps*VISTA member, and then as part of MHP's staff. Along with preparing funding requests and reports for corporate and private foundations, he leads the application process for MHP's collaborative technical assistance contracts with HUD and USDA Rural Development. These national, multi-year requests bring together partners from throughout the Upper Midwest and across the country. He also participates in the management of MHP's technology resources, and helps people remember what that random report from five years ago said, and figure out where it might be living after all these years. When he's not at MHP, he can be found enjoying the seasons in Como Park.
