HUD Programs: HUD regulates the two housing government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs), which are the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae) and the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Company (Freddie Mac), each being chartered by Congress to create a secondary market for residential mortgage loans. These GSEs are the largest source of housing finance in the United States
In October 2000, HUD published a new final rule which significantly increased the percentage of business the GSEs are required to devote to specific affordable housing goals. These goals are:
