Building a better future for housing

Fannie Mae is working to knock down barriers that keep people from accessing affordable, stable homeownership and rental opportunities, including barriers that disproportionately impact people of color. In 2021, we adapted our mission to the housing needs of a country recovering from a pandemic and wrestling with its persistent disparities in homeownership, wealth, and opportunity. That mission, “to facilitate equitable and sustainable access to homeownership and quality affordable rental housing across America,” is as urgent today as at any time in our history. Our successes in 2021 laid the groundwork for a better future for U.S. housing — a future that the people of Fannie Mae are ready and eager to build.

As required by Fannie Mae’s Charter Act and implementing regulations, the company submits its Annual Housing Activities Report (“AHAR”) and Annual Mortgage Report (“AMR”).

The AHAR and AMR reflect housing activities undertaken by Fannie Mae and the company’s performance against our housing goals established by the Federal Housing Finance Agency (“FHFA”).

The AHAR and AMR include data tables that provide information about each goal and our performance under each goal and subgoal. Included in the tables are dollar volumes, number of mortgages and number of units related to owner occupied and rental properties financed by Fannie Mae’s mortgage purchases.
