President Obama makes appearance at Atlanta Symposium
The Atlanta Homeownership Symposium provided live streaming of President Obama's Homeowner Affordability and Stability Plan announcement. As luncheon speaker Mike Calhoun (Center for Responsible Lending) concluded his presentation on "Tightening Credit and the Changing Financial Market," symposium attendees watched on widescreen as President Obama outlined his plan to help families avoid foreclosure by restructuring or refinancing their mortgages. The key elements of Obama's plan are:
- 1. GSE refinancing for responsible homeowners suffering from falling home prices
- 2. $75 billion homeowner stability initiative to reach 3 to 4 million At-Risk Homeowners
- 3. Supporting low mortgage rates by strengthening confidence in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
