SUMMARY:  The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) is issuing a proposed rule with request for comments on the housing goals for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (the Enterprises) for 2022 through 2024.  The Federal Housing Enterprises Financial Safety and Soundness Act of 1992 (the Safety and Soundness Act) 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 existing housing goals for the Enterprises include benchmark levels through the end of 2021.  This proposed rule would establish new benchmark levels for the housing goals and subgoals for 2022 through 2024.  The proposed rule would also replace 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).  Finally, the proposed rule would make several technical changes to definitions and other provisions to conform the regulation to existing practice.

DATES:  FHFA will accept written comments on the proposed rule that are received on or before October 25, 2021.
