HPP Office Manager Marit Eriksmoen Honored
10.15.2012 - HPP

Marit Eriksmoen became the second HPP staff member within the last month to receive a significant award.  In October, Marit learned that she will be honored by the Minnesota Justice Foundation with a 2012 Advocate Outstanding Service Award on November 15, 2012. 

Marit, HPP's Office Manager since 2009, provides the glue to hold together the diverse range of activities generated by HPP's small but busy staff.  "Marit's combination of positive attitude, organizational skills and attention to detail are what keep HPP going," says HPP President Tim Thompson.  Two of her recent accomplishments are particularly noteworthy: her administration of a large complex federal grant, and her improvements to HPP's system of monitoring federally subsidized rental properties at risk of expiring use restrictions. 

The MJF Award came shortly after HPP attorney Jane Holzer was honored as a 2012 Up & Coming Attorney by Minnesota Lawyer.
