SUMMARY:  The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) is issuing a final rule on the single-family housing goals for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac for 2022 through 2024, as well as the multifamily housing goals for 2022.  The Federal Housing Enterprises Financial Safety and Soundness Act of 1992 requires FHFA to establish annual housing goals for mortgages purchased by the Enterprises.  The housing goals include separate categories for single-family and multifamily mortgages on housing that is affordable to low-income and very low-income families, among other categories.  The final rule establishes the benchmark levels for each of the single-family housing goals and subgoals for 2022 through 2024.  The final rule also replaces the low-income areas subgoal with separate area-based subgoals targeting the individual components of the low-income areas subgoal (minority census tracts and low-income census tracts).  The final rule establishes the multifamily housing goals for 2022 only.  For the small low-income multifamily subgoal, the final rule establishes separate benchmarks for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.  Finally, the final rule makes several technical changes to definitions and other provisions to conform the regulation to existing practice.

DATES:  The final rule will become effective on February 28, 2022​.
