Modified Underserved Markets Plans (Revised 12/19/2018)
On December 19, 2018, the Federal Housing Finance Agency published Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac's (the Enterprises) modified Underserved Markets Plans for 2018-2020 under the Duty to Serve program. The Plans, originally published Dec. 18, 2017 became effective Jan. 1, 2018.
Each Enterprise adopted a three-year Underserved Markets Plan. The activities proposed by the Enterprises are subject to FHFA review and approval to ensure compliance with the Enterprises' Charter Acts, safety and soundness, and other conservatorship and regulatory requirements. Under the Duty to Serve rule and FHFA's Evaluation Guidance, an Enterprise may propose to modify its Plan at any point if future events affect its ability to achieve the Plan's original objectives.
