Locked Out: What Losing Fannie, Freddie, and the Affordable Housing Goals Will Mean for the American Dream

 

Please join us for an important conversation about the future of the government-sponsored enterprises and housing finance reform on Friday, January 31 at 8:30 a.m.
“Locked Out: What Losing Fannie, Freddie, and the Affordable Housing Goals Will Mean for the American Dream” will tackle two critical questions in the reform debate:
Can we afford to create a secondary mortgage market that lacks the obligation to serve the full spectrum of creditworthy borrowers?
Is dismantling Fannie and Freddie the right thing for consumers and the housing market as a whole?

Redlining and Neighborhood Health

Before the pandemic devastated minority communities, banks and government officials starved them of capital.

Lower-income and minority neighborhoods that were intentionally cut off from lending and investment decades ago today suffer not only from reduced wealth and greater poverty, but from lower life expectancy and higher prevalence of chronic diseases that are risk factors for poor outcomes from COVID-19, a new study shows.

The new study, from the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) with researchers from the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee Joseph J. Zilber School of Public Health and the University of Richmond’s Digital Scholarship Lab, compared 1930’s maps of government-sanctioned lending discrimination zones with current census and public health data.
