Webinar: Part I: Federal Programs to Advance Homeownership Opportunity to Narrow Racial Disparities – May 17

Posted by Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia on April 26, 2022

For many Americans, owning a home is an effective tool for building household — and generational — wealth. Yet households of color have faced historical and systematic barriers to homeownership that widely persist today.

Join us for two-part series on exploring federal policies and initiatives aimed at reducing racial disparities in homeownership. The first virtual event will focus on envisioning more innovative federal policies for expanding homeownership opportunities and ensuring stakeholders can leverage these programs effectively. This series is cohosted by the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia, the Urban Institute, and the Penn Institute for Urban Research.

During this event, you will learn about the latest federal policies to advance racial equity in the housing sector including: the equity plans by the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), the interagency Action Plan to Advance Property Appraisal and Valuation Equity, new home renovation products and underwriting innovations from government-sponsored enterprises, and other innovative strategies for reshaping housing market access. Our panels will discuss strategies for reducing disparities in housing access and ways that stakeholders can leverage these federal programs locally.

Date and Time: Tuesday, May 17, 2022, 12:00-1:30 PM
