About This Event

For close to 80 years, the Federal Housing Administration has helped millions of families achieve homeownership and has promoted stability in the U.S. housing market. But in the wake of the worst housing crisis since the Great Depression, the agency is facing mounting losses.

Our keynote speaker, FHA Acting Commissioner Carol Galante, will address the major findings from the agency’s 2012 actuarial review and annual report to Congress, and our panel will discuss these findings, the role FHA has played in recent years, and what lessons we can learn for the future.
