Media Availability: Experts Available to Discuss Housing Recovery, Housing and Mortgage Policies

Wednesday, January 7, 2015

President Obama is slated to discuss housing recovery and related policies on Thursday, January 8, 2015 from Central High School in Phoenix, Arizona.

The Center for Responsible Lending has long been a research and policy leader on housing and mortgage policies. CRL has researched issues including access to credit, abusive mortgage lending practices, discrimination in markets, and family wealth-building.

As early as 2006, CRL began calling attention to the abusive and predatory mortgage products that led to foreclosures and the financial crisis – as well as the disproportionate impact that the crisis continues to have on lower and middle-income families. Links to reports are available below.

CRL senior vice president Paul Leonard will be attending the speech in Arizona and other CRL experts are available to discuss the housing recovery, the financial crisis, and the landscape of mortgage and housing policy moving forward.
