The Act gave FHFA the authorities necessary to oversee vitalcomponents of our country’s secondary mortgage markets – Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and the Federal Home LoanBanks. In addition, this law combined the staffs of the Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight (OFHEO),the Federal Housing Finance Board (FHFB), and the GSE mission office at the Department of Housing and UrbanDevelopment (HUD). With a very turbulent market facing our nation, the strengthening of the regulatory andsupervisory oversight of the 14 housing-related GSEs is imperative. FHFAs mission is to provide effectivesupervision, regulation and housing mission oversight of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the Federal Home LoanBanks to promote their safety and soundness, support housing finance and affordable housing, and support a stableand liquid mortgage market. As of September 2010, the combined debt and obligations of these GSEs totaled $6.7trillion, which is $2.7 trillion below the total publicly held debt of the USA. Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae alsopurchased or guaranteed 65% of new mortgage originations.
