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).

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).
