Do Government-Sponsored Enterprise Efforts Work?

Institutional relationships can bolster the government-sponsored enterprise efforts to serve minority and low-income populations.

This article examines differences in the number and percent of government-sponsored enterprise (GSE) purchases of single-family loans made to minorities and low- and moderate-income borrowers in metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) across the country. The objective of the research was to determine whether differences in the extent of institutional relationships among the GSEs, lending institutions, Government agencies, and nonprofit community-based organizations explain differences across MSAs in the GSEs' purchases of loans made to traditionally underserved populations.
