Supporting sustainable reforms that remove barriers to homeownership

USMI strongly supports enabling homeownership for all mortgage-ready borrowers, including historically underserved households. We support efforts to remove barriers to homeownership and increase access to affordable and sustainable mortgage credit.

These principles, as articulated in USMI’s response to FHFA Request for Input (RFI) on its Equitable Housing Finance Plans, apply to specific concepts and proposals that aim to advance equity in the housing finance system.

The private MI industry welcomes the opportunity to work with FHFA, the government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs), and other housing finance stakeholders to advance these goals.
