WHF Brown Bag Lunch: FHLBank Affordable Housing Program Final Rule

The brown bag lunch will open with a brief overview of WHF and the WHF Foundation for new and perspective members.  Following that short introduction, experts will discuss the Federal Housing Finance Agency’s (FHFA) publication of a final rule amending its regulation for the Federal Home Loan Banks’ Affordable Housing Program (AHP) in November 2018. The final rule provides additional flexibility at the local level for the FHLBanks, in consultation with their Affordable Housing Advisory Councils, to allocate their AHP funds and to design their project selection scoring systems to address affordable housing needs in their districts; authorizes the FHLBanks to establish separate competitive funds target specific affordable housing needs in their districts; modifies the owner-occupied retention agreement requirement; and establishes a calculation for household subsidy repayment.
