Summary
This July 2017 brief offers five policy recommendations for housing finance reform.
Description

In the coming months, Congress will engage in a high-stakes debate over the future of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the entire housing finance system. Enterprise believes that any housing finance reform effort must seek to: a) ensure stable access to affordable single-family and multifamily credit for all eligible borrowers, both across geographies and throughout the business cycle, b) promote broad access to sustainable homeownership for all creditworthy families, and c) expand support for rental housing that is affordable to low- and moderate-income households. This brief offers five policy recommendations for achieving those overarching goals.
