"On April 22, the U.S. Department of the Treasury and HUD formally published a notice seeking comments on how a more stable and sound housing finance system can be established. This notice was announced by Secretary Shaun Donovan on April 14 at a House Committee on Financial Services hearing on the housing finance system (see Memo, 4/16). 

Specifically, respondents are asked to weigh in on the seven questions Treasury and HUD released in advance of the April 14 hearing. The questions provide an opportunity for advocates to comment on the government’s role in financing multifamily housing, and the proper balance between government support for homeownership and rental housing. 

Comments are due July 21. A copy of the notice can be found at http://edocket.access.gpo.gov/2010/pdf/2010-9309.pdf."
