The Home Guaranty Corporation (HGC) is a government-owned and controlled corporation (GOCC) under the administrative supervision of the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC). Since its creation in 1950 as the Home Financing Commission, HGC has institutionalized a viable system of credit guaranties that has become an integral component of the government’s shelter program. HGC takes the risk out of private investment in housing by providing risk covers and fiscal incentives to housing credits extended by developers, banks and other financing institutions. The more HGC guarantees—the more private funds flow for housing and urban development. With the enactment of Republic Act No. 8763, or the Home Guaranty Corporation Act of 2000, the authorized capital of HGC was increased from P2.5 billion to P50 billion and its corporate life extended to another 50 years.
