CUNA Supports FHFA’s Proposed Housing Goals
Posted September 05,2017 by CUNA Advocacy

Today, CUNA filed a letter with the Federal Housing Finance Agency in support of its proposed 2018 - 2020 Enterprise Housing Goals. 

We recognize that the FHFA’s objective is to set the benchmarks to their market projections, not to actually influence the market. Accordingly, we support the proposed benchmarks for single family purchases, which will remain essentially the same as prior years. 

The safety and soundness of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac is very important to credit unions, and should remain a top mission of the FHFA in overseeing the operation of the Enterprises.
