WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Senate today approved the nomination of Julia Gordon to be Assistant Secretary of Housing and Urban Development and FHA Commissioner.

In response, Mike Calhoun, president of the Center for Responsible Lending (CRL), made the following statement:

CRL congratulates Julia Gordon on her confirmation today to lead FHA. She is a dynamic executive who has worked on affordable housing issues across the spectrum, including for rural and low-income borrowers.

Ms. Gordon brings extraordinary experience and skills to FHA at a time when all housing market participants must act with urgency to address housing affordability issues and close the racial homeownership gaps.
