The Federal Home Loan Bank Act requires the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) to establish a Community Support Program (CSP) for FHLBank Topeka members. CSP regulations set forth standards of community investment or services allowing FHLBank members to maintain continued access to long-term advances (term to maturity greater than one year). The CSP requires FHLBank members to submit a Community Support Statement (CSS) to FHFA documenting a member’s Community Reinvestment Act of 1977 [12 U.S.C. §2901 et seq.] (CRA) performance and support of first-time homebuyers.
Look for information in early 2021 for the next community support round.
