FHLB Policies and Programs
In This Section
The FHLBs are critical sources of liquidity for banks, credit unions, insurance companies, and other select financial institutions committed to housing finance and community investment.
Overview: As member-owned cooperatives that operate in 11 districts covering the entire nation, the FHLBs ensure steady funding for a variety of housing finance activities. MBA supports continued evaluation of the FHLB membership eligibility criteria, particularly as the mortgage origination landscape evolves. Sensible reforms should promote safety and soundness while better reflecting the diversity of the housing finance system.
