How Would A Second Trump Term Impact Major Housing Issues?

David Dworkin, CEO of the National Housing Conference, a nonprofit, nonpartisan coalition of national housing leaders from both the public and private sector, says that some municipalities found the AFFH reporting requirements “onerous,” but that instead of tossing out the entire rule, HUD could have made revisions to certain reporting practices.

“I think it’s reasonable to argue how much reporting needs to be done,” Dworkin says. “But Trump has thrown the whole thing in the garbage can.”

How Would A Biden Presidency Impact Housing Policy?

“Anti-discrimination legislation, like ending redlining—which Biden proposes—in housing is crucial. “What Biden is proposing would help millions of Americans.

Dworkin

David M. Dworkin and Neil Cavuto on FOX Business News Cavuto: Coast to Coast

“Affordable housing doesn’t hurt home values. It actually strengthens communities and it is a critical component of building our way out of this recession. Housing has led the recovery of every recession since 1960 except for the last one, and that’s an obvious exception to the rule. But if we’re going to get out of this recession, it’s not going to be by having people go back to work at Neiman Marcus or J.Crew. Those companies have filed for bankruptcy, and we’re going to need to put people to work and I think housing construction is a really critical component of how we’re going to do that. ” – David M. Dworkin

Housing industry turns against Fannie, Freddie’s added refinance fee

“The pricing increase is particularly harmful for our nation’s low- and moderate-income homeowners and for the emerging, but unsteady improvements to the national economy,” they concluded. “The undersigned organizations strongly urge the Federal Housing Finance Agency, which had to approve this policy, to withdraw this ill-timed, misguided directive.”
