MCLEAN, Va. – April 28, 2021 – Freddie Mac (OTCQB: FMCC) today issued the following statement in support of the announcement by the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) that Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae will introduce a new option aimed at helping homeowners who make at or below 80% of the area median income refinance their mortgage. Freddie Mac’s Refi Possible will be available this summer for borrowers with Freddie Mac-backed mortgages.
