FHFA Releases 2016 Scorecard for Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and Common Securitization Solutions

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
12/17/2015

Washington, D.C. – The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) today released the 2016 Scorecard outlining specific, conservatorship priorities for Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and their joint venture, Common Securitization Solutions, LLC.  The 2016 Scorecard furthers the goals outlined in FHFA's Strategic Plan for the Conservatorships of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, published in May 2014.  These goals include: 

  • Maintain, in a safe and sound manner, credit availability and foreclosure prevention activities for new and refinanced mortgages to foster liquid, efficient, competitive and resilient national housing finance markets;
  • Reduce taxpayer risk through increasing the role of private capital in the mortgage market; and
  • Build a new single-family securitization infrastructure for use by the Enterprises and adaptable for use by other participants in the secondary market in the future.

"The progress Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac made in 2015 substantially advanced the goals set forth in our Conservatorship Strategic Plan and we expect to build on this progress in 2016," said FHFA Director Melvin L. Watt.  "The new Scorecard will guide Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and Common Securitization Solutions as they continue working to foster liquidity and access to credit for creditworthy borrowers in the national housing finance markets in a safe and sound manner."
