SUMMARY:  The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) is proposing to amend the existing Federal Home Loan Bank Housing Goals regulation.  FHFA proposes to replace the existing four separate retrospective housing goals with a single prospective mortgage purchase housing goal as well as establish a separate small member participation housing goal.  The proposed rule would also allow the Banks to request FHFA approval of alternative target levels for the proposed goals.  Finally, FHFA is proposing to eliminate the existing $2.5 billion volume threshold that triggers the application of housing goals for each Bank.

DATES:  Written comments must be received on or before January 31, 2019.
