Resident-Centered Practices at Multifamily Properties Backed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac

On May 30, 2023, the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) published a Request for Input (RFI) seeking information on tenant protections for multifamily properties backed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (the Enterprises). Previously, the White House Blueprint for a Renters Bill of Rights stated that FHFA would launch a process to conduct stakeholder outreach and engagement to identify the opportunities and challenges of adopting and enforcing tenant protections.

The RFI was an opportunity for FHFA to:

  • Collect information that highlights tenants’ experiences and stakeholders’ perspectives; and
  • Solicit ideas for improved data collection to better quantify the size and scope of the issues identified by tenants.

Responses from the RFI will be foundational to FHFA’s future exploration of resident-centered management practices at Enterprise-backed properties. FHFA intends to continue its public stakeholder engagement process in 2024.

The RFI request and responses are available in the following documents:
