The Government National Mortgage Association, more commonly known as Ginnie Mae, plays a critical role in the U.S. housing finance system. Ginnie Mae's impact is significant: By providing a full faith and credit guaranty for $2.4 trillion in securities consisting of mortgages insured by the Federal Housing Administration, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, USDA's Rural Housing Service, and HUD's Indian Home Loan Guarantee program, Ginnie Mae helps connect investors from across the globe to the U.S. housing market. This promotes the availability of mortgage credit to the millions of households served by federal housing programs.
Join us for a fireside chat with Ginnie Mae President Alanna McCargo as we explore the unique features of the "Ginnie Mae model," her goals and priorities for the organization, and the opportunities she sees for Ginnie Mae to expand homeownership opportunities for underserved people and communities. The fireside chat will conclude with an assessment of the future of the U.S. housing finance system.
