Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will deliver her first paid speech since leaving office last month in late April, according to a Democratic source close to Clinton.

The source told CNN the speech will be to the National Multi Housing Council in Dallas on April 24. The source did not disclose how much Clinton is being paid for the speech.

The National Multi Housing Council bills itself as an association that represents rental apartment firms.

Shortly after leaving her State Department post, Clinton signed on with the Harry Walker Agency as her representative for speaking engagements. She is expected to be a highly sought speaker who could earn in the six-figure range per appearance.

She will deliver unpaid remarks at two events this week, including the Vital Voices Global Leadership Awards in Washington and the Women in the World Summit in New York.

Clinton is also working a book about her time at the State Department and deciding how she'll pursue her interest in furthering the advancement of women and girls, the source said.

Her husband, former president Bill Clinton, has earned at least $89 million in speech-related income since leaving office.
