Housing Finance Reform Incubator

July 11, 2016

Abstract

Eight years after Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were placed into conservatorship, the conversation about their future is stuck. As we inch closer to electing a new president and to the start of a new Congress, it is time for an open-minded look at the housing finance system and what role, if any, today’s government-sponsored enterprises might play in the future. To help evaluate this critical issue, the Urban Institute’s Housing Finance Policy Center is releasing the Housing Finance Reform Incubator, a series of short essays about the future of housing finance reform.

Read electronic versions of the essays.
