Housing Agency Proposes Regulation On Minority And Women Inclusion

 FEDERAL HOUSING FINANCE AGENCY

 
 
 
 
Washington, DC -- The Federal Housing Finance Agency,(FHFA), has sent to the Federal
Register a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on Minority and Women Inclusion. The proposed
rule implements Section 1116 of the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 (HERA).
 
The proposed rule will be open for public comment for a period of 60 days after publication.
 
The proposed rule sets forth the elements of the agency’s diversity program, reflecting the
requirement in Section 1116 “to take affirmative steps to seek diversity in its workforce . . .
consistent with the demographic diversity of the United States.” As also required by HERA, the
proposed rule explains that the agency will exercise its regulatory and supervisory
responsibilities to monitor and ensure Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, each of the 12 Federal Home
Loan Banks and the Bank System’s Office of Finance adhere to diversity requirements.
 
The proposal extends the coverage of diversity requirements to disabled populations as well as
the minority and female populations required by HERA. The proposed rule identifies basic
requirements for diversity programs at each regulated entity and applies the requirements to all
aspects of the entity’s workforce, operations and business. Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, each
Federal Home Loan Bank and the Federal Home Loan Bank System’s Office of Finance would
be required to establish, maintain and adequately fund a diversity program, take diversity into
account when considering competing bids for contracts and engage in diversity outreach for
employment, board memberships and contracting. The proposed rule requires each entity also
to report annually to the FHFA certain demographic data concerning diversity in employment
and contracting.
 
FHFA will take all comments into consideration in moving to a final rule on minority and
women inclusion.
