New Initiatives by Fannie Mae to Enhance Latino Homeownership Access
Programs and Resources to Bridge the Homeownership Gap
Fannie Mae, the government-sponsored enterprise (GSE), recently announced the launch of innovative programs and resources aimed at tackling the homeownership gap experienced by the Latino community. These initiatives are designed to provide responsible access to housing and long-term sustainable homeownership opportunities.
In an effort to promote homeownership among Latinos, Fannie Mae is implementing the HomeReady® Hispanic Centric Approach, a program tailored to meet the unique needs of this community. This initiative offers flexible underwriting guidelines and low down payment options, making homeownership more attainable for qualified Latino borrowers.
Furthermore, Fannie Mae is expanding its downpayment assistance program, providing financial support to eligible homebuyers. This expansion aims to help more Latino families overcome the challenge of saving for a down payment, turning their dreams of homeownership into a reality.
