The Government National Mortgage Association, or Ginnie Mae, is a U.S. government-owned corporation that resides within the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Its guaranty allows mortgage lenders to obtain a better price for their mortgage loans in the secondary mortgage market. The lenders can then use the proceeds of a sale of loans to fund new mortgage loans.
Ginnie Mae was founded with the signing of the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1968 signed into law by President Lyndon Johnson, and is headquartered alongside HUD in Washington, D.C.
