FHFA Reopens, Extends Comment Period on Limited English Proficiency RFI

The Federal Housing Finance Agency has reopened and extended the deadline of its request for information on how to serve borrowers with limited English proficiency to Sept. 1. The original comment period officially closed on July 31.

The association also outlined several principles for assessing the impact of language barriers on LEP borrowers going forward.
