Public Policy

$45:1 direct investment for every $1 appropriated Our ability to be flexible, fast and accountable has earned us the trust of the U.S. Congress, the administration, financial institutions, local governments and nonprofit organizations.

We tackle some of the nation's biggest housing and community development challenges:
  • Access to affordable, sustainable homeownership.
  • Safe, quality rental homes.
  • Foreclosure mitigation and recovery.
  • Community resiliency in the wake of disasters like Superstorm Sandy and Hurricane Katrina.
  • Professional training and certification for those in the field.
If you have a policy, legislative or regulatory questions, send us an email.
