Before joining Amerifirst, he served as senior counsel to the U.S. Senate Finance Committee and previously as senior counsel to the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs, Washington, D.C. In this capacity, he advised Senate Republicans on housing and mortgage policy and played a key role in drafting several pieces of legislation that became law, according to a press release. 

Most notably, he was the principal drafter and negotiator of the mortgage forbearance program enacted in the CARES Act. Prior to his service in the Senate, Jones worked in residential policy for the Mortgage Bankers Association.

“During his time in DC, Matt has cultivated personal relationships with top lawmakers, agency heads, GSE leadership, and industry leaders - relationships that will ensure we maintain a seat at the table with some of the largest companies in our industry,” said Dave Gahm, co-CEO and co-founder of Amerifirst Home Mortgage. “And that’s important as we grow our footprint and continue advocating for programs that offer affordable housing and lending options for millions of Americans in communities across the country.”
