FHFA’s equity plan: Too much or not enough?

The PSPAs continue to pose a problem for new affordability targets

HW+ FHFA

The day after Labor Day, the nation’s top housing regulator announced that its regulated entities, which control half the nation’s $11 trillion housing market, would have to come up with plans to address racial equity.

The Federal Housing Finance Agency’s decree came with a tight deadline for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The two government sponsored enterprises would have less than four months to submit and implement the plans which, along with annual progress reports, the FHFA vowed to make public.

Both of the GSEs quickly chimed in with statements of support, although the terms of their conservatorship mandate their cooperation.
