Government and Industry Relations
Freddie Mac's Government and Industry Relations team is committed to ensuring that Members of Congress and their staff have the information they need regarding Freddie Mac and its business policies to serve their constituents and to understand our commitment to our mission.
Freddie Mac Government Relations can help to answer questions and concerns that your constituents may have with regard to Freddie Mac loans and policy.
- How do I submit an inquiry to Government Relations?
- Check to ensure that the loan belongs to Freddie Mac by visiting Freddie Mac's loan look-up tool.
- Send the inquiry via email (email submissions are strongly recommended) to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
- If the loan is owned by Freddie Mac, please include the full name, address and the loan number if available.
- Attach a completed Privacy Release form from your office. Note: we are unable to process a new inquiry without a completed Privacy Release on file in order to comply with Federal Privacy laws.
- Include a brief summary of the issue and the desired resolution.
- What if my inquiry is urgent?
- Please add "Urgent" to the subject line of your email.
- If applicable, please also include the foreclosure or eviction date in the subject line of your email.
- If possible, alert your designated contact in Freddie Mac Government and Industry Relations.
- What should I expect when I submit a new inquiry?
- Once you submit a new inquiry, you should receive an email confirmation. If you do not receive an email confirmation within 48 hours that informs you of the person assigned to your inquiry, please email the email@example.com email box again.
Please allow time for us to obtain the complete loan history. If additional information is required from the servicer, it may take several days to obtain a response.
