WASHINGTON, D.C. (June 24, 2021) -  Statement of MBA President and CEO Bob Broeksmit, CMB, regarding President Biden's announcement that he intends to nominate Julia Gordon to be the next Federal Housing Commissioner at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD):

"MBA applauds the nomination of Julia Gordon to lead the Federal Housing Administration.  

"Her previous experience, which includes senior roles at the National Community Stabilization Trust and the Federal Housing Finance Agency, provides her with a unique perspective on the issues facing our nation's housing and mortgage markets.  

"We look forward to continuing to work with her, Secretary Marcia Fudge, and others at HUD and in the administration to ensure a strong FHA program that provides affordable housing opportunities, both rental and owned, for all Americans, while also protecting taxpayers. We also look forward to working with the agency to finish the much-needed work to improve efficiency, instill certainty and bring more lenders back to the FHA program."
