Chuck Fowke, chairman of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and a custom home builder from Tampa, Fla., issued the following statement regarding the Senate confirmation of Dana Wade to run the Federal Housing Administration (FHA):

“NAHB applauds the Senate confirmation of Dana Wade as the new FHA commissioner. Having served as acting FHA commissioner from July 2017 to June 2018, she brings valuable experience to the job and understands the challenges confronting home buyers, renters and home builders stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic. NAHB looks forward to working with the new FHA commissioner to mitigate the effects of the outbreak on the housing community, ease regulatory burdens that are exacerbating the nation’s housing affordability crisis and to make homeownership and rental housing more accessible for all Americans.”
