Research Fellow Mark Willis presented on the state of the national housing market at an American Action Forum panel at Ohio State University. Willis discussed drivers and potential deterrents to economic recovery. He also examined the positive impact of government programs, such as the Home Affordable Refinance Program (HAMP), to help distressed borrowers and distressed communities.  The forum also explored further ways to stabilize the housing market and to reform the secondary housing finance market. The American Action Forum is an independent and nonpartisan research institution, which engages in discussions on the role of government in national policymaking.
