About this event

FHFA is hosting public listening sessions as part of a notice of proposed rulemaking that would establish new regulatory capital requirements for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (the Enterprises). The proposed rule is a re-proposal of the July 2018 notice of proposed rulemaking that remains the foundation of the rule. The enhancements in the new proposal preserve the mortgage risk-sensitive framework of the 2018 proposal, while increasing the quantity and quality of the Enterprises' regulatory capital and reducing the pro-cyclicality of the aggregate capital requirements. Together, the enhancements in the re-proposal ensure each Enterprise's safety and soundness and its ability to fulfill its statutory mission across the economic cycle during periods of financial stress. The re-proposal is also a critical step toward responsibly ending the conservatorships.

The purpose of the listening sessions is to give interested parties a public opportunity to elaborate on their formal comment letters on one of two specific topic areas – credit risk transfers and affordable housing access. The listening sessions do not substitute for formal comment letters.

Each session is tentatively scheduled to begin at 10:00 a.m. and conclude at 4:00 p.m. ET. If you wish to request a brief speaking slot, please select your desired time slot on the following page.

Agenda: Public Listening Session on CRT Sept. 10, 10 a.m.-12:35 p.m.

Agenda: Public Listening Session on Affordable Housing Access, Sept. 14, 10 a.m.-12:35 p.m.
