    The National Council of State Housing Agencies (NCSHA) urged Congress today to strengthen FHA’s affordable multifamily lending capacity by enhancing its already successful partnership with state Housing Finance Agencies (HFA). NCSHA advocated for authorizing Ginnie Mae to securitize Federal Housing Administration (FHA)-insured multifamily loans under the FHA-HFA Risk-Sharing program to help address the nation’s growing need for rental housing. These remarks were made during testimony before the House Financial Services Subcommittee on Insurance, Housing and Community Opportunity hearing on FHA multifamily mortgage insurance programs.
