FHFA Issues 2022-2026 Strategic Plan

The Federal Housing Finance Agency, Washington, D.C., released its 2022-2026 Strategic Plan Thursday.

The FHFA Strategic Plan: Fiscal Years 2022-2026​ outlines the agency’s priorities as regulator of the Federal Home Loan Bank System and regulator and conservator of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

FHFA noted the new Strategic Plan formalizes areas of focus for the agency and its regulated entities by establishing three goals: 

* Secure the regulated entities’ safety and soundness

* Foster housing finance markets that promote equitable access to affordable and sustainable housing, and

* Responsibly steward FHFA’s infrastructure.

“This plan emphasizes FHFA’s commitment to safety and soundness and will further position FHFA’s regulated entities to provide equitable access to affordable and sustainable housing opportunities as the country emerges from the pandemic,” said FHFA Acting Director Sandra L. Thompson.  

Thompson noted the plan also reaffirms FHFA’s emphasis on making effective use of the agency’s resources and on identifying and addressing operational risks. “FHFA is committed to being transparent as it implements this plan and we will continue to seek stakeholder input as the agency considers policy options,” she said.

FHFA released a draft Strategic Plan in February. At the time it invited feedback from Congress, stakeholders and the public over a 30-day period ending on March 11.
