Cohosted by the Urban Institute and CoreLogic

US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and government-sponsored enterprise (GSE) note sales programs have become an important part of the loss mitigation strategies for the Federal Housing Administration and the GSEs. These programs have come under fire for being too quick to push borrowers into foreclosure and for not allowing nonprofits to play a larger role. Both programs have made significant changes to address these issues.  In this sunset seminar, we look at the state of these loan sales programs, changes that have been made since inception, and further changes that can be made to improve the process. Our distinguished panel of speakers includes an investor, a consumer advocate, and representatives from HUD and the Federal Housing Finance Agency.  


  • Erik Cribbs, senior adviser, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
  • Laurie Goodman, director, Housing Finance Policy Center, Urban Institute
  • Julia Gordon, executive vice president, National Community Stabilization Trust
  • Don Mullen, founding partner, Pretium Partners
  • Faith Schwartz, senior vice president, government and public affairs, CoreLogic
  • Eric Stein, special adviser, Federal Housing Finance Agency 


This seminar is the eighth in a series sponsored by CoreLogic and the Urban Institute, focusing on public policy issues relevant to the mortgage market. These seminars aim to bring together policymakers, practitioners, and analysts for lively conversations on topics of current interest.


Please note that this event is open to press. Send any questions or inquiries to Alison Rincon at arincon@urban.org. Light fare will be available at 5:30 p.m. The program will begin promptly at 6:00 p.m
