The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) announced it will conduct a comprehensive review of the Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLBank) System beginning in the fall of 2022. As part of the review process, FHFA will host two public listening sessions and a series of regional roundtable discussions to consider and evaluate the mission, membership eligibility requirements and operational efficiencies of the FHLBanks. FHFA will hear from stakeholders on FHLBanks’ role or potential role in addressing housing finance, community and economic development, affordability and other related issues.

FHFA invites interested parties to speak or attend the kick-off event for FHLBank System at 100: Focusing on the Future, a listening session on September 29 at the Constitution Center in Washington, DC, with the option to participate virtually.
