Illinois home builder Ed Brady, who is also the outgoing 2016 NAHB chairman, is among the candidates that the Trump transition team has talked to about becoming the next Federal Housing Administration (FHA) commissioner.

“I am extremely humbled to even be considered for the position of FHA commissioner,” said Brady. “As a home builder who has had to deal with FHA-compliance on a daily basis, I would bring a real-world perspective to the job if I was fortunate enough to be offered this important housing policy post.”

Brady is president of Brady Homes Illinois, a small single-family home building and development firm.

In addition to serving as NAHB chairman, Brady also serves on the board of directors of the Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago and he is also a member of the Bipartisan Policy Center Housing Commission. He previously served on the Affordable Housing Committee, directing and approving more than $100 million in grants for affordable housing throughout the country.

The FHA provides mortgage insurance on loans made by FHA-approved lenders throughout the United States and its territories. FHA insures mortgages on single family and multifamily homes. It is the largest insurer of mortgages in the world, insuring over 34 million properties since its inception in 1934.
