HUD INVITES PUBLIC INPUT ON HOUSING FINANCE SYSTEM REFORM

Thursday, April 22, 2010 - 6:00am

The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) today published a notice seeking public input on establishing a more stable and sound housing finance system. As described in an announcement last week, HUD is inviting public comment on the future of the housing finance system, including Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and the overall role of the federal government in housing policy. Today’s notice lists seven questions on which HUD and the Treasury Department would like public input, and describes the process for submitting comments, which are due by July 21.
