The FDIC conducts regional and local outreach and information sharing activities on a wide range of economic inclusion and community development topics including affordable mortgage lending. These activities are often held in conjunction with other federal, state and local agencies, and community organizations.
Affordable mortgage credit workshops are designed for community banks and others interested in single-family mortgages to learn more about innovative products and programs from federal and other sources to expand the access to affordable mortgage credit to low- to moderate-income (LMI) people and other underserved populations. Participants learn about federal programs and other resources that can enhance or expand mortgage-related lending activities in their local markets.
