FDIC and HUD Host Expanding Access to Homeownership Resources to the Underserved in North Dakota

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) will host a webinar to support equitable homeownership opportunities in low- and moderate-income and underserved communities. The event will increase awareness and access to recent homeownership funding and resources. The focus will be to promote collaboration between banks and affordable housing community organizations; highlight affordable housing programs; and provide resources that banks and community organizations can use to support underserved and rural communities. Presenters will share information on housing programs and resources and provide assistance to access housing resources. Attendees will also learn about collaborative opportunities to partner with North Dakota organizations committed to housing opportunities that support economic inclusion.
