Public Policy: Watching Washington
Our team is a resource for state and federal government officials to understand the impact FHLB Cincinnati has on their constituents in Ohio, Kentucky, and Tennessee, and for our member institutions to better understand the impact regulations and legislation will have on them. We work closely with individuals in the public and private sectors to better serve the public purpose of the FHLB System in stimulating housing and economic development.
Created by Congress in 1932, the Federal Home Loan Bank System is a national network of 11 Federal Home Loan Banks and more than 8,000 member financial institutions. The Federal Home Loan Bank of Cincinnati is a government sponsored enterprise (GSE) with the mission to improve access to housing and to foster community investment through its member financial institutions. Each of the 11 member-owned District Banks is a privately capitalized, independently managed cooperative with its own board of directors. However, being a GSE means that the Bank is subject to significant federal oversight by Congress and the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA).
Through participating in affordable housing events in the community with local officials to organizing industry roundtables with members of Congress, our team develops relationships within the financial services industry and government to help share information in order to succeed with our goals. If you work for the government or one of our members and would like to reach out to us with any questions, comment or suggestion, please contact us!
