President Biden’s nomination of Sandra Thompson to serve as Director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) is the right choice for one of the most important jobs in housing. Since her appointment as FHFA Acting Director in June, Ms. Thompson has repeatedly demonstrated her commitment to an equitable housing finance system. Her extensive experience at the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation makes her particularly well qualified to oversee the safety and soundness of the housing industry through the Government Sponsored Enterprises.

Should she be confirmed to a five-year term at FHFA’s helm, she will have a unique opportunity to leverage her decades of experience to ensure Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the Federal Home Loan Bank System meet the needs of all American families, including those who have not traditionally been served by our housing finance system.
