Affordable Homeownership Advisory Council

The Affordable Homeownership Advisory Council (Council) is an opportunity for MBA members to address the nation’s affordable housing challenges and explore innovative solutions. We operate like a think tank by discussing affordable homeownership concerns and providing possible solutions and recommendations to the Residential Board of Governors for policy consideration. We will also explore best practices and standardizations for various programs and seek new business opportunities and partnerships for MBA members.
