SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Community Support Review

    Section 10(g)(1) of the Federal Home Loan Bank Act (Bank Act) 
requires FHFA to promulgate regulations establishing standards of 
community investment or service that Bank members must meet in order to 
maintain access to long-term Bank advances. See 12 U.S.C. 1430(g)(1). 
The regulations promulgated by FHFA must take into account factors such 
as the Bank member's performance under the Community Reinvestment Act 
of 1977 (CRA), 12 U.S.C. 2901 et seq., and the Bank member's record of 
lending to first-time homebuyers. See 12 U.S.C. 1430(g)(2). Pursuant to 
section 10(g) of the Bank Act, FHFA has promulgated a community support 
requirements regulation that establishes standards a Bank member must 
meet in order to maintain access to long-term advances, and establishes 
review criteria FHFA must apply in evaluating a member's community 
support performance. See 12 CFR part 1290. The regulation includes 
standards and criteria for the two statutory factors--members' CRA 
performance and members' record of lending to first-time homebuyers. 12 
CFR 1290.3. Only members subject to the CRA must meet the CRA standard. 
12 CFR 1290.3(b). All members subject to community support review, 
including those not subject to the CRA, must meet the first-time 
homebuyer standard. 12 CFR 1290.3(c). Members that have been certified 
as community development financial institutions (CDFIs) are deemed to 
be in compliance with the community support requirements and are not 
subject to periodic community support review, unless the CDFI member is 
also an insured depository institution or a CDFI credit union. 12 CFR 
1290.2(d). In addition, FHFA will not review an institution's community 
support performance until it has been a Bank member for at least one 
year. 12 CFR 1290.2(e).
    Under the regulation, FHFA reviews each applicable member once 
every two years. Starting April 1, 2017, each member that is subject to 
community support review will be required to use an online form to 
submit to FHFA a completed Community Support Statement, executed by an 
appropriate senior officer of the member. All Community Support 
Statements for this review cycle must be submitted using the online 
form by December 31, 2017. FHFA will review the community support 
performance of each member after receiving the member's completed 
Community Support Statement.

II. Public Comments

    FHFA encourages the public to submit comments by March 31, 2017, on 
the community support performance of Bank members. Each Bank is 
required to post a notice on its public Web site and to notify its 
Advisory Council, nonprofit housing developers, community groups, and 
other interested parties in its district of the opportunity to submit 
comments on the community support programs and activities of Bank 
members, with the name and address of each member subject to community 
support review. 12 CFR 1290.2(c)(1). In reviewing a member for 
community support compliance, FHFA will consider any public comments it 
has received concerning the member. 12 CFR 1290.2(c)(3). To ensure 
consideration by FHFA, comments concerning the community support 
performance of members being reviewed in 2017 must be submitted to 
FHFA, either by electronic mail to hmgcommunitysupportprogram@fhfa.gov, 
or by fax to 202-649-4308, on or before March 31, 2017. 12 CFR
