Our Affordable Housing Strategy
MGIC’s Affordable Housing Strategy is to advance the values of diversity, equity and inclusion and take the lead in engaging and collaborating with industry stakeholders toward the following outcomes:
- Increase the number of families prepared and ready to own a home
- Expand sustainable homeownership opportunities for creditworthy homebuyers
- Close the racial/ethnic gaps in homeownership
In pursuit of this strategy, we’re focusing on how we can make a difference through policy, partnerships, research and products.
