CU Opportunity: Learn About an Underutilized Homebuyer Program in “Ginnie Mae 101” on Feb. 22

The National Credit Union Administration and the Government National Mortgage Association will co-host a Feb. 22 webinar, “Ginnie Mae 101” – which is the primary Federal Agency supporting first-time homebuyer programs through U.S. Dep. of Agriculture Rural Housing, FHFA, VA, and more.

The no-cost webinar will cover topics such as Ginnie Mae’s business model, mortgage-backed securities programs, and partnership opportunities. Representatives from Navy and Kinecta federal credit unions will discuss the benefits of working with Ginnie Mae. Topics will include:

  • Ginnie Mae’s mission and core programs;
  • The guaranty of timely payments of scheduled principal and interest due investors;
  • The Ginnie Mae MBS framework that allows issuers to pool loans and loan packages for an MBS that carries the guaranty; and
  • Online resources about Ginnie Mae programs and how credit unions can participate.

About Ginnie Mae

Ginnie Mae is an entirely government-owned corporation that attracts global capital into the housing finance system to support homeownership for veterans and millions of homeowners throughout the country. Ginnie Mae mortgage-backed security (MBS) programs directly support housing finance programs administered by the Federal Housing Administration, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Office of Public and Indian Housing, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Rural Housing Service. Ginnie Mae is the only MBS to carry the explicit full faith and credit of the United States Government.
