Rent Reporting and Credit Building Opportunities for HUD-Assisted Residents

Tuesday, June 7, 2022 2-3:00 p.m. ET

This joint webinar by HUD, the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau (CFPB), the Credit Builders Alliance webinar will discuss strategies to help HUD-assisted residents build positive credit histories. A 2019 HUD study of three public housing agencies found that more than half of the adult residents likely lacked a credit score or had a bad credit score, while the majority likely did not have a bank account. Without a positive credit history, these residents potentially face higher costs for borrowing money and barriers to housing and employment. Come learn about strategies for assisting residents build positive credit histories, including rent reporting and credit builder loans! We will explore tools and resources you can use to start credit building programs and educate residents about credit topics.  The Housing Authority of Clackamas County, Oregon will also share firsthand experience implementing rent reporting.

Webinar Speakers:

  • Todd Richardson, Department of Housing and Urban Development, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Policy Research and Development
  • Irene Skricki, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau
  • Mary Jo Halder, Credit Builders Alliance
  • Jemila Hart, Housing Authority of Clackamas County
