In an effort to reduce substantial inventories of non-performing loans (NPLs) and improve borrower outcomes, in 2014 FHFA approved a pilot program by Freddie Mac to sell NPLs and later approved sales of NPLs by both Enterprises. FHFA announced enhanced requirements for the Enterprises’ NPL sales in March 2015. Additional enhancements were announced in April 2016. FHFA believes that the sale of severely delinquent loans through NPL sales will improve borrower and neighborhood outcomes and will reduce Enterprise losses while reducing risk to taxpayers.
