Solving This Together
"Housing affordability is an issue facing millions of Americans, both those who rent and those who want to buy a home. There is no easy solution. The only way we are going to solve this is by getting lenders together with policymakers, consumer advocates, community leaders, and other stakeholders, and using our collective knowledge and experience to find the answers."
