Take Action With the Mortgage Action Alliance
In This Section
Speak directly with your members of Congress, state legislators and federal regulators about the impact of proposed legislation or regulations with the Mortgage Action Alliance, Inc.® (MAA). This voluntary, non-partisan and free nationwide grassroots lobbying network of real estate finance industry professionals, affiliated with the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA), is dedicated to strengthening the industry's voice and lobbying power in Washington, DC and state capitals across America.
Get involved with MAA to play an active role in how laws and regulations that affect the industry and consumers are created and carried out by lobbying and building relationships with policymakers. It only takes a moment to get started, and you do not have to be a member of MBA to enroll.
You can share this animated video with your colleagues, which outlines MBA's advocacy programs and the importance of getting involved.

Federal Reserve Chair Jay Powell testified before the relevant House and Senate authorizing committees this week to offer his semi-annual report on the state of the nation's economy and employment.
