The Federal Housing Finance Agency, which oversees Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, released an updated strategic plan in draft form for public comment. The draft builds on the earlier Strategic Plan for Conservatorship but adds significant additional detail. The four strategic goals heading the plan are in keeping with past statements:
1) Safe and sound housing GSEs.
2) Stability, liquidity, and access in housing finance.
3) Preserve and conserve Enterprise assets.
4) Prepare for the future of housing finance in the United States.
Public comments are due June 13, as described in the release. Suggestions for NHC’s comments should go to Ethan Handelman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
