Federal Housing Finance Agency Policies

 

Accessibility

​The majority of pages on this website are accessible to individuals with disabilities in accordance with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act.

Equal Employment Opportunity

​FHFA prohibits discrimination in all aspects of its personnel policies, program practices and operations. We promote programs of inclusive recruitment and employment at all levels of FHFA. It is our goal to build upon the diversity of our organization.

Inventory, Priorities, & Schedule

​FHFA is required under OMB Circular A-130 and the Paperwork Reduction Act to disseminate information to the public in a timely, equitable, efficient, and appropriate manner and to maintain inventories of information dissemination products. FHFA posts any updates to final determination of inventories, priorities, and schedules.

 

No FEAR Act

​The No FEAR Act is intended to increase the accountability of Federal agencies for acts of discrimination or reprisal against employees, former employees, and applicants. FHFA posts certain summary statistical data related to equal employment opportunity complaints filed against it.

​Open Government

​FHFA complies with all instructions in President’s Open Government memorandum in January 2009 to ensure the public has access to important information about the agency’s work to meet its mission.

Plain Writing

​FHFA is committed to writing new documents in plain language using the Federal Plain Language Guidelines requiring federal agencies to write "clear Government communication that the public can understand and use."

Records & Information Management

FHFA believes in public trust through records integrity, and takes steps to adequately and properly document the organization, functions, policies, decisions, procedures and essential transactions of the agency.

Website & Social Media Policies

​Our privacy policy is clear: we will collect no personal information about you when you visit our website unless you voluntarily choose to provide that information to us.  We respect your right to privacy and will protect it when you visit our website.

Whistleblower Protections

​The Whistleblower Protection Act (WPA) prohibits taking or not taking a personnel action (or threatening either) with respect to any employee or applicant because of any disclosure of information by an employee or applicant which he or she reasonably believes evidences a violation of any law, rule, or regulation or gross mismanagement, a gross waste of funds, an abuse of authority, or a substantial and specific danger to public health or safety, unless the employee or applicant is prohibited from making the disclosure due to national security reasons.

API Terms of Service

​FHFA may offer some of its public data in machine readable format via an Application Programming Interface (“API”). These Terms of Service (“TOS”) along with the FHFA.gov Terms of Use and the FHFA Private Policy govern access to and use of the API.​
