FHFA to Request Input on Multifamily Tenant Protections

The Federal Housing Finance Agency announced it will issue a Request for Input on multifamily tenant protections In May.

FHFA previously announced​ in the White House Blueprint for a Renters Bill of Rights that it would conduct a public stakeholder engagement process to identify tangible solutions for addressing the challenges renters are facing nationwide, particularly among underserved communities. The agency has committed to a transparent process that includes broad participation from diverse voices.

Additionally, FHFA instructed Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to explore the feasibility of expanding multifamily tenant protections for properties they finance and to identify strategies and activities that could facilitate a greater amount of affordable rental housing supply.
