Home / Supervision & Regulation


Our mission is to ensure that Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and the Federal Home Loan Bank System are operating in a safe and sound manner to serve as a reliable source of liquidity for equitable and sustainable housing finance and community investment throughout the economic cycle.

Advisory Bulletins

FHFA Advisory Bulletins provide supervisory guidance to Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and the Federal Home Loan Bank System regarding particular supervisory issues.

An Advisory Bulletin reflects the position of FHFA on a particular issue and is followed by supervisory staff.

Examiner Resources

The FHFA Examination Manual improves the transparency of supervision processes, applies uniform standards, and clarifies regulatory expectations. 


Rulemaking and Federal Register 

Rulemaking is the process federal agencies use to create regulations. It is designed to ensure the public is informed of proposed rules, has the opportunity to comment on them, and has access to the rulemaking record. Generally, the rulemaking process is conducted through the following steps:

    1. Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (optional step)

    2. Proposed Rule

    3. Public Comment 

    4. Final Rule
