(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.
