The National Housing Task Force was established in September 1987, as part of a Congressional effort to reexamine America's housing policy. Privately initiated and funded, the Task Force was comprised of 26 individuals who have diverse experience in housing policy, production and finance. Drawn from business, banking, community service, and state and local government, the nonpartisan group was led by James W. Rouse, as chairman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of The Enterprise Foundation; and David O. Maxwell, as vice chairman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae).
