Our New Resource on Workforce Housing
March 4, 2016
Workforce housing is essential to our business, Freddie Mac’s mission — and to most U.S. renters.
So what exactly is workforce housing? It’s unsubsidized multifamily housing that’s affordable to most low- to middle-income households.
Check out our new fact sheet to get the low-down on workforce housing and why it matters.
As one of the nation’s top funders, we’re partnering with borrowers and lenders to help more families find quality rental housing they can afford. Overall, more than 90 percent of the rental housing we fund helps families with incomes at or below the area median income. Workforce housing was a key source of our growth in 2015. We continue to focus on growing our business in this area, which often falls outside of our $35 billion cap.
Workforce Housing: Think Freddie first.
