Housing affordability is at the core of our mission

Affordable housing is at the core of our mission

Having an affordable place to call home is a dream so many share. But the chance to achieve that dream isn't always equal in all markets.

Our Duty to Serve initiative tackles this challenge in three of the country's toughest markets—manufactured housing, rural housing, and the preservation of existing affordable housing.

And it helps the people of modest means Fannie Mae was created to serve—those facing affordability or financing obstacles, and those threatened by the loss of low-cost housing.

An opportunity to serve

Our three-year Duty to Serve Plan is hands-on and personal, but also nationwide.

We're on the ground in Appalachia, the Mississippi Delta, tribal communities, and our border regions. We're addressing workforce housing and persistent poverty. We're helping save affordable rentals and reducing costs through energy and water efficiency. We're engaged with the manufactured housing industry and its communities.

It's an opportunity to partner, to create, to test new solutions, and to improve the housing finance system while we serve the people who need a safe, affordable place to call home.
