Washington, DC – The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) today released a strategic plan for its Office of Minority and Women Inclusion (OMWI) that reflects the agency's commitment to promoting diversity and inclusion. The strategic plan covers fiscal years 2016-2018 and describes how OMWI will support the diversity and inclusion mandates included in both the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 and the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010. The plan was developed to help the agency advance and achieve the strategic goals identified in the FHFA Strategic Plan for FY 2015 – FY 2019. The plan also outlines OMWI's role in leading diversity and inclusion and equal employment opportunity efforts at FHFA, and diversity and inclusion efforts at Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and the Federal Home Loan Bank System, which includes 11 Banks and the Office of Finance.
The Federal Housing Finance Agency regulates Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the 11 Federal Home Loan Banks. These government-sponsored enterprises provide more than $5.6 trillion in funding for the U.S. mortgage markets and financial institutions.
