Date: January 4, 2007
Creator: McCarty, Maggie
Description: The local public housing authorities (PHAs) that administer the federal public housing program will begin receiving their annual federal operating subsidies under a new formula in January 2007.

This report provides a brief overview of the changes to the public housing operating fund formula that will take place in FY2007.

Subprime Mortgages: Primer on Current Lending and Foreclosure Issues

Subprime Mortgages: Primer on Current Lending and Foreclosure Issues

Date: March 19, 2007
Creator: Murphy, Edward Vincent
Description: This report discusses the issue of subprime mortgages, which are loans extended to borrowers with weak credit profiles. Subprime mortgages entail higher risk of delinquency and default. Recent increases in subprime borrower foreclosures and lender bankruptcies have prompted concerns that some lenders’ underwriting guidelines are too loose and that some borrowers may not have fully understood the risks of the mortgage products they chose. Regulatory agencies are revisiting the guidance they provide lenders and are reevaluating required disclosures to consumers. In addition, Congress is holding hearings on the subject and may consider consumer protection legislation.
