WASHINGTON (3/9/16)--The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) issued a progress report this week summarizing the activities Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac took in 2015 to further the FHFA’s three stated strategic objectives as conservator: maintain, reduce, and build. Announcing the report, the FHFA said it details efforts to counter the restrained access to credit for credit-worthy borrowers, help financially struggling borrowers and hardest-hit communities avoid or mitigate the impact of foreclosures, and support affordable multifamily lending. It also describes Fannie's and Freddie's credit-risk transfer programs and other activities meant to increase the role of private capital in the secondary mortgage market. The FHFA welcomes public input on its report via email to ConservatorshipStrategicPlan@fhfa.gov
