WASHINGTON – On behalf of the National Housing Conference (NHC), I would like to congratulate Secretary Janet Yellen on her historic confirmation as Secretary of the Treasury.
Her leadership will be essential to addressing the mounting economic crisis as a result of the devastating impact of COVID-19. Secretary Yellen’s background as Federal Reserve Board Chairwoman will be critical to her role in navigating the nation through the challenges ahead of us. Treasury has played an increasingly central place in housing policy, as evidenced by the department’s role in affordable housing investment and rental assistance. We look forward to working with her to ensure America’s most at-risk homeowners are protected as well, and mortgage and housing markets are strong and equitable.
