The following are only the Rules published in the Federal Register after the published date of Title 12.
For a complete list of all Rules, Proposed Rules, and Notices view the Rulemaking tab.
The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) is relocating six Federal Housing Finance Board (Finance Board) regulations to new locations within the FHFA chapter of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). The regulations relate to: Community Investment Cash Advance Programs (CICA); Federal Home Loan Bank (Bank) collection, settlement, and processing of payment instruments; miscellaneous Bank authorities; Bank requests for information from the federal banking regulators; Financing Corporation (FICO) operations; and Bank assistance for the Resolution Funding Corporation (RefCorp). This final rule relocates those regulations without any substantive modification and removes and designates as reserved several empty subchapters in the Finance Board chapter of the CFR. This final rule also creates a general definitions section to be located at the beginning of the FHFA chapter to facilitate the use of common terms found throughout the chapter.
This document reprints, in a more readable format, a table displaying the new benchmark levels for the single-family housing goals for 2012, 2013 and 2014 that originally appeared in the final rule published in the Federal Register on November 13, 2012 entitled “2012-2014 Enterprise Housing Goals.”
The Federal Housing Enterprises Financial Safety and Soundness Act of 1992 (Safety and Soundness Act) requires the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) to establish annual housing goals for mortgages purchased by the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae) and the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (Freddie Mac) (collectively, the Enterprises). FHFA previously established housing goals for the Enterprises through 2011. This final rule establishes new levels for the housing goals for 2012 through 2014, consistent with the requirements of the Safety and Soundness Act.

The following are ALL rules, proposed rules, and notices (chronologically) published in the Federal Register relating to 12 CFR 1282 after this date.
The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) is issuing and seeking comments on a proposed rule that would amend FHFA's existing housing goals regulation to establish housing goals for 2012, 2013 and 2014 for the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae) and the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (Freddie Mac) (collectively, the Enterprises). The benchmark levels established by this regulation for 2013 would continue in effect for 2014, unless FHFA determines that the 2014 benchmark levels should be adjusted based on its market assessment for 2014. In addition, FHFA seeks comments on whether the housing goals regulation should be amended to address the possibility that an Enterprise would receive credit under the housing goals for the purchase of a multifamily mortgage that was intended to facilitate the conversion of the property securing the mortgage from affordable rents to market rate rents.
