Figure 1: Housing Activities and Programs, by Purpose and Agency, Fiscal Year 2010
This image is excerpted from a U.S. GAO report:
HOUSING ASSISTANCE: Opportunities Exist to Increase Collaboration and Consider Consolidation
Note: Some of these programs/activities incurred no obligations in fiscal year 2010 because, among other reasons, they were not part of the federal budget or were inactive during the year. a Some activities may have multiple purposes.bThe Federal Open Market Committee, a nonregulatory component of the Federal Reserve System, undertook the activities. In November 2008, the Committee announced the purchase of up to $500 billion (later raised to $1.25 trillion) of mortgage-backed securities issued by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, or guaranteed by the Government National Mortgage Association (Ginnie Mae) to support mortgage and housing markets and the broader economy. Its authorization did not require a determination that emergency conditions existed. Therefore, the Federal Reserve does not consider this assistance “emergency,” but we have labeled it as such for purposes of this report because it was an outgrowth of the current housing crisis.
