Washington, D.C. – “The Enterprises are leveraged nearly 1,000-to-one, ensuring they would
fail during an economic downturn – exposing taxpayers once again. This letter
agreement between Treasury and FHFA, which allows the Enterprises to retain
capital of up to $45 billion combined, is an important milestone on the path to
reform,” said FHFA Director Mark Calabria. “FHFA commits to working with
Treasury in the coming months to amend the share agreements and further advance
broader housing finance reform. These reform goals include limiting the
government’s role in housing finance, increasing marketplace competition,
focusing on affordable housing, and sustainable homeownership. The status quo
is not an option. Now is the time to act.”
