Spotlight on Housing Finance Reform

The issue of housing finance reform is heating up in Congress. This issue has broad and lasting implications for the future of the middle class and economic opportunity in America. NCRC is committed to ensuring that housing finance reform results in a system that provides access to conventional loans for the full spectrum of creditworthy borrowers, as well as affordable rental housing.

Please see below for NCRC resources and join us as we advocate for fair access for all communities in housing finance reform!
