Chief Compliance Officer

Darcel 3

Darcel Cox, Chief Compliance Officer, joined the Housing Opportunities Commission of Montgomery County (HOC) in March 2013.  Prior to joining HOC, Ms. Cox was the Senior Property Manager for the Shelter Group, where she specialized in rehabilitation and new construction lease up and compliance activities. Garnering significant acclaim, she grew adept at managing mixed-finance rehabilitation efforts, which required managing downleasing and moving residents multiple times during construction. Ms. Cox served in this position from 2003-2013 and managed four properties.  During this time, she successfully implemented the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program, layered with federal funding programs such as Project-Based Section 8 and HOME.  One of Ms. Cov's most successful projects was the redevelopment efforts at then-known Guilford Gardens, later known as Monarch Mills. After a complete redevelopment effort, Monarch Mills became a mixed-income community, comprising Market Rate, Project-Based Section 8, and HOME-assisted units, growing from 100 units to over 250, with separate family and senior buildings and enhanced amenities.

Since 2016, Ms. Cox has served as a board member for the Inwood House board of directors. Cox holds a BS degree in Business Management from Baltimore University, as well as several certifications and a housing accreditations, such as the Housing Credit Certified Professional accreditation and the Blended Housing Occupancy, Tax Credit Specialist, Occupancy Specialist, Mixed Finance, Housing Choice Voucher, Certified Housing Assistance Manager and RAD Project Based Voucher certifications.
