SEC. 2. FINDINGS AND PURPOSE.

    (a) Findings.--The Congress finds that--
            (1) the priorities of our Nation should include expanding 
        homeownership opportunities by providing access to affordable 
        housing that is safe, clean, and healthy;
            (2) our Nation has an abundance of conventional capital 
        sources available for homeownership financing;
            (3) experience with local homeownership programs has shown 
        that if flexible capital sources are available, communities 
        possess ample will and creativity to provide opportunities 
        uniquely designed to assist their citizens in realizing the 
        American dream of homeownership; and
            (4) each consumer should be afforded every reasonable 
        opportunity to access mortgage credit, to obtain the lowest 
        cost mortgages for which the consumer can qualify, to know the 
        true cost of the mortgage, to be free of regulatory burdens, 
        and to know what factors underlie a lender's decision regarding 
        the consumer's mortgage.
    (b) Purpose.--It is the purpose of this Act--
            (1) to encourage and facilitate homeownership by families 
        in the United States who are not otherwise able to afford 
        homeownership; and
            (2) to expand homeownership through policies that--
                    (A) promote the ability of the private sector to 
                produce affordable housing without excessive government 
                regulation;
                    (B) encourage tax incentives, such as the mortgage 
                interest deduction, at all levels of government; and
                    (C) facilitate the availability of flexible capital 
                for homeownership opportunities and provide local 
                governments with increased flexibility under existing 
                Federal programs to facilitate homeownership.
