The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) has released an updated strategic plan for FHFA for fiscal years 2013-2017 subtitled, “Preparing a Foundation for a More Efficient and Effective Housing Finance System.” The four strategic goals included in the new FHFA plan are:
►Safe and sound housing government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs)—Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and Federal Home Loan Banks;
►Stability, liquidity, and access in housing finance;
►Preserve and conserve Enterprise (Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac) assets; and
►Prepare for the future of housing finance in the United States.
“The initiatives and strategies set forward in this plan will serve to improve current mortgage
processes, inspire greater confidence among prospective market participants, and set the stage
for recovery and an improved future system of housing finance,” said Acting Director Edward J. DeMarco. “Working with the Congress, the Administration and FHFA’s stakeholders, I am confident that FHFA will meet the challenge of building the foundation for a safer, more efficient, and effective system of housing finance.”
The agency requested public comment on the strategic plan in May in accordance with the Government Performance and Results Modernization Act of 2010. Preparing a Foundation for a More Efficient and Effective Housing Finance System also incorporates key components of FHFA’s Strategic Plan for Enterprise Conservatorships released in February.
