Housing affordability is an issue facing millions of Americans and it comes with challenges for both consumers and lenders alike. Fortunately for mortgage lenders, there are numerous programs available in the marketplace that can help increase access to credit and homeownership. These programs come with their own unique benefits, considerations and requirements, and some or all of them may not be the right fit your business.

Speakers will give a high-level overview of the respective programs and how you effectively integrate and operationalize the programs now.
