Fannie Mae Moves to Loosen Home Loan Credit Rules
    The nation's largest provider of mortgage funds, moving to increase homeownership among minorities and low-income citizens, unveiled a program Thursday to loosen lending standards for people with "slightly impaired" credit.
    The Federal National Mortgage Assn. said it will encourage banks and other financial institutions to accept borrowers with blemished credit who may not otherwise qualify for conventional loans.
    The program will begin on a pilot basis in 15 states, including California, and the District of Columbia. It is expected to expand nationwide early next year.
    It is designed to provide homeownership opportunities for "many borrowers whose credit is just a notch below qualifying for a loan, said Franklin Raines, Fannie Mae's chairman and chief executive.

According the Washington Post, Raines had "taken calls from Barack Obama's presidential campaign seeking his advice on mortgage and housing policy matters."
