This status report describes progress from September 1, 2012, to May 1, 2013, toward implementation of the Compact for Home Opportunity, a compilation of policy ideas designed to stem foreclosures, restore communities, protect fair housing, and ensure that homeownership is an accessible pathway to American opportunity. This status report complements a previous one that spanned the period from the release of the Compact in February 2012 through August 2012. This most recent report finds meaningful progress on multiple elements of the Compact, but also inadequate movement in multiple areas, particularly by Congress.
