MARCH 21: Housing Finance & Social Equity: Learning From Ginnie Mae

Date: Tuesday, March 21, 2023
Time: 11:00 am
Location: Hybrid: Online & In-Person
Speaker: Alanna McCargo

Persistent racial and ethnic disparities in access to homeownership have created the need to examine whether—and how—to change aspects of the complex and rapidly changing housing US finance system. This challenge, and the foundational questions it raises, will be the focus of a series of public lectures given by practitioners and scholars as part of a class on housing finance and equity offered by the MIT Department of Urban Studies and Planning in conjunction with the MIT GCFP and Harvard’s JCHS (see below).

The last session in the series will feature Alanna McCargo, President of Ginnie Mae, who will discuss efforts to ensure that America’s housing finance system equitably and affordably serves the capital and credit needs of all households.
