The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) is accepting membership applications for its Federal Advisory Committee on Affordable, Equitable, and Sustainable Housing.​

The Committee advises the FHFA on affordable, equitable, and sustainable housing issues, including regulatory or policy changes that may be necessary to provide reliable liquidity to housing finance markets, especially in underserved areas.

The ​FHFA is seeking experts from a variety of fields, including fair lending, fair housing, civil rights, capital markets, investments, single-family and multifamily lending, community advocacy, Low-Income Housing Tax Credits, research, and other related areas. The Committee is only an advisory body and has no decision-making authority.

Members of the public interested in being considered may apply via the Committee’s webpage.

“Broad stakeholder engagement leads to better policy that positively impacts housing affordability and access in communities across the country,” said FHFA Director Sandra L. Thompson. “I look forward to hearing recommendations from the new Advisory Committee that will be representative of diverse communities, points of view, organizational sizes, and geographic locations.”
