The Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLBank) System has been a critical source of liquidity for its members for the past 90 years, especially during times of market stress, such as the Great Recession and the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic. The FHLBanks also support low-income housing and community development directly by offering a variety of programs to their members, including the Affordable Housing Program, the Community Investment Program, and the Community Investment Cash Advance Program.
As the FHLBanks approach their centennial, the Federal Housing Finance Agency will conduct a comprehensive review to ensure they remain positioned to meet the needs of today and tomorrow. As part of the review process, FHFA will host two public listening sessions and a series of regional roundtable discussions to consider and evaluate the mission, membership eligibility requirements, and operational efficiencies of the FHLBanks. FHFA will hear from stakeholders on the FHLBanks’ role or potential role in addressing housing finance, community and economic development, affordability, and other related issues.
FHFA is specifically interested in receiving feedback in six key areas:

Register here to attend or to be added to the waitlist for a speaking slot. We will hold a spot for you at a future Listening Session to be held later this year or early next year. Listening sessions agenda is now available.
FHFA is also accepting written comments through October 21, 2022, via
