The National Housing Conference congratulates Sandra Thompson for her confirmation as Director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency, and applauds the Senate for confirming her to a full five-year term at the agency’s helm.
“Since her appointment at FHFA Acting Director last June, Ms. Thompson has repeatedly demonstrated her commitment to an equitable housing finance system,” said NHC President and CEO David M. Dworkin. “In less than a year, she has led the rewrite of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac’s Duty to Serve plans to expand the Enterprises’ activity in underserved markets, and created a new Equitable Housing Finance framework to increase lending in markets not covered by the Duty to Serve program. I have every confidence that she will continue to prioritize sustainably expanding racial equity and access to affordable housing now that she has been confirmed.”
The National Housing Conference (NHC) is the oldest and broadest coalition of affordable housing leaders in America. We are a diverse continuum of affordable housing stakeholders that convene and collaborate through dialogue, advocacy, research, and education, to develop equitable solutions that serve our common interest.
