​FHFA established the Suspended Counterparty Program to help address the risk to Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and the Federal Home Loan Banks (“the regulated entities”) presented by individuals and entities with a history of fraud or other financial misconduct.  Under this program, FHFA may issue orders suspending an individual or entity from doing business with the regulated entities.

FHFA maintains a list at this page of each person that is currently suspended under the Suspended Counterparty Program.
