    Comptroller Curry Speaks at MAHA Annual Meeting

    Members and friends packed into 1803 Dorchester Avenue on Monday night, December 3, for MAHA's 2012 Annual Meeting featuring remarks from the nation's leading bank regulator, Thomas J. Curry, Comptroller of the Currency.

    Comptroller Curry praised MAHA's work with homebuyers and singled out MAHA's HomeSafe post-purchase program that is now offered by a dozen community organization throughout Massachusetts.

    "As Massachusetts Commissioner of Banks I saw firsthand how critical the work of this organization is. Your counseling programs not only help to create homeownership opportunities, but help to sustain homeownership through delinquency intervention and post-purchase counseling. Your insights inform banking regulators and examiners about financial needs in communities and provide us with important on-the-ground intelligence about what banks are doing to help meet those community needs," stated Comptroller Curry.

    Curry also complimented the series of annual reports, Paying More for the American Dream, which examine inequalities in the housing finance system and which are the work of a seven member community collaboration that includes MAHA.
