Washington, D.C. – The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) today announced that it is extending the comment period for the Agency's proposed rule to amend the Federal Home Loan Banks' Affordable Housing Program by 30 days. The comment period was previously set to close on May 14, 2018, 60 days after publication in the Federal Register. The comment period will now close on June 12, 2018.
FHFA is also sending amended language to the Federal Register to correct a calculation in the proposed rule which prevented AHP funds awarded to the Homeownership Set-Aside Program from being counted toward fulfillment of a proposed regulatory outcome requirement.
FHFA is extending the comment period due to the high level of interest in the proposed rule, requests from multiple stakeholders for more time to evaluate it, and to allow time for comments on the proposed amended language.
Comments on the proposed rule, including on the amended language, must be received by June 12, 2018 and should be submitted via
FHFA.gov or in accordance with the directions provided in the Federal Register notice extending the comment period.
