Federation Offers Webinar of Homeownership Education, Counseling
NEW YORK (12/9/13)--The Credit Union National Association and the National Federation of Community Development Credit Unions  are hosting a free webinar on homeownership education, counseling, and financing at 2 p.m. (ET) Dec. 17.
 
The federation is a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development-approved National Housing Counseling Intermediary. It helps credit unions and their local partners become HUD-approved counseling agencies.  
 
Since 2008, the federation has helped members of CDCUs become first-time homebuyers through counseling that connects the homebuyer to the right mortgage loan and provides the skills, knowledge and preparation for successful homeownership. Pre-purchase counseling is key to reducing mortgage delinquency, according to NeighorWorks America.  
 
This year, the federation has partnered with NeighborWorks America to better connect credit unions around the country to homeownership counseling and support services that will increase credit union lending for affordable homeownership.  
 
Featured presenters at the webinar include:
  • Ann Solomon, coordinator of the federation's Housing Counseling Network, will present pathways to building successful housing counseling programs.
  • Eileen Anderson, senior relationship manager in homeownership for NeighborWorks America, will highlight partnership opportunities with NeighborWorks organizations nationwide.
  • Cheryl Fatnassi, president/ CEO of $33 million-asset Opportunities CU, Winooskie, Vt., will showcase the credit union's range of affordable housing services and resources available to members in their Vermont communities.
