Our Affordable Housing Goals and Scorecard

The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) sets affordable housing goals for Freddie Mac Multifamily. This means they determine the number of low-income (LI) and very-low income (VLI) units that we must source annually. Units that qualify for the low-income goal are affordable to renters with incomes no greater than 80 percent of the area median income (AMI); very-low-income units are affordable to renters with incomes no greater than 50 percent of the AMI.

The FHFA also sets an annual production volume cap for Freddie Mac Multifamily. Last year FHFA modified the volume cap, which was welcome news because it encourages more volume in affordable housing. For a list of loans excluded from the cap, including FHFA-defined very-high-cost and high-cost markets, refer to our 2017 Multifamily Lending Exclusions Summary.

We're more committed than ever to providing innovative finance solutions that keep rental housing within reach for families.
