Budget, Finances, and Performance

FHFA continues work to stabilize the nation's housing finance sector through our regulatory and conservatorship activities in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis - one of the worst crises since the Great Depression.

FHFA is an independent agency with a unique mission responsible for providing oversight of the housing government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs or alternatively, ‘the regulated entities’).

The housing GSEs include Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac (known as the Enterprises), the Federal Home Loan Banks and the FHLBanks’ joint Office of Finance (known as the Federal Home Loan Bank System).

The focus of FHFA’s mission is to promote their safety and soundness and ensure that the GSEs serve as a reliable source of liquidity and funding for housing finance and community investment.
