“I’m grateful for NHC’s leadership in convening the Black Homeownership steering committee including my friends at the NAACP, the National Urban League, the Mortgage Bankers Association, the National Association of REALTORS®, the National Association of Real Estate Brokers and many others who are lending their critical expertise.”
The meeting also featured remarks from NHC Chair Anne McCulloch of the Housing Partnership Equity Trust and a presentation by NHC President and CEO David Dworkin on NHC’s FY2020 financial information and our 2021 policy initiatives.
