      The Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLB) system was created by the Federal Home Loan Bank Act of 1932 as a government sponsored enterprise to support mortgage lending and related community investment. It is composed of 12 FHL Banks, more than 8000 member financial institutions, and the System's fiscal agent, the Office of Finance. Each FHL Bank is a separate, government-chartered, member-owned corporation. The Federal Home Loan Banks (FHLB) members include thrift institutions, commercial banks, credit unions, and insurance companies. A financial institution joins the FHL Bank district that serves the state where the institution's home office or principal place of business is located. A financial institution may become a member by meeting certain statutory requirements.

      The FHFA House Price Index (HPI) is a broad measure of the movement of single-family house prices. The HPI is a weighted, repeat-sales index, meaning that it measures average price changes in repeat sales or refinancings on the same properties. This information is obtained by reviewing repeat mortgage transactions on single-family properties whose mortgages have been purchased or securitized by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac since January 1975.
