We will also ensure that resources remain available for renters as our economy and financial markets cope with pandemic-related disruptions.”


“We want to thank our DUS lenders for helping us support the multifamily market in another challenging year,” said Rob Levin, Senior Vice President of Multifamily Customer Engagement, Fannie Mae. “Together with our lenders we have been able to ensure there is adequate liquidity in all multifamily markets at all times, and we look forward to working with our lender partners in 2022.”
