    Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and the Federal Home Loan Banks (the Government-Sponsored
    Enterprises, or GSEs) were established by Congress to promote liquidity, affordability, and
    stability in housing finance. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac purchase and securitize loans from HFAs and other lenders that use the proceeds to make more mortgages. The Federal Home Loan Banks make advances to their member lenders and HFAs and provide affordable housing grants to developments that often include HFA financing.

    Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, Government-Sponsored Enterprises or GSEs, purchase and
    securitize loans from HFAs and other lenders that can use the proceeds to make more
    mortgages. Traditionally, they have been major buyers of Housing Credits and Bonds, though
    they have reduced these investments sharply in recent years.
    With America in the grip of a deepening housing crisis, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac should
    expand their critical role in bringing liquidity to the housing market and investing in Housing
    Credits and Bonds.
