Have you ever wanted to learn more about housing policy in the United States? If so, we have some great resources for you.

Thanks to IAHSA Board Member Steve Protulis we are able to connect you to reports that have been compiled in response to inquiries by international delegations visiting the Department of Housing & Urban Development in Washington.

These visitors have many questions about applying U.S. practices in emerging markets, structuring an effective secondary mortgage market, and managing credit risk. Three reports compiled in response to these inquiries are now available in multiple languages and
can be downloaded, free of charge, from the web pages listed below:

o Evolution of the U.S. Housing Finance System: a
Historical Survey and Lessons for Emerging
Mortgage Markets,
(in English, French, Spanish, and Russian).

o Mortgage Securitization – Lessons for Emerging
