Fannie Mae Multifamily Ends 2022 With Nearly $70B in Overall Volume

Fannie Mae announced that it provided more than $69 billion in debt financing to support the multifamily market in 2022.

Through its Delegated Underwriting and Servicing (DUS) platform, along with its Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) equity, Fannie Mae delivered on its mission to provide access to affordable housing nationwide.

"This year marks our 35th anniversary of DUS, a platform that relies on shared risk and strong lender partnerships to serve the needs of the rental housing market," said Michele Evans, EVP and Head of Multifamily of Fannie Mae. "Our DUS program is well-positioned to support the secondary market and play a key role as a stable source of liquidity. We look forward to working with our DUS lenders in the coming year to continue to serve the market and address its most pressing challenges."

Fannie Mae's Multifamily Affordable Housing volumes totaled $10.3 billion in 2022, up nearly 7% from $9.6 billion in 2021, while Structured Transactions and Student Housing increased from $5.7 billion to $10.3 billion (82.6%), and $0.9 billion to $1.2 billion (26%), respectively. Additionally, Seniors Housing volumes totaled $1 billion last year, up more than 26% from $0.8 billion in 2021.

Fannie Mae was able to commit all of its $1.7 billion cap for calendar years 2021 and 2022 and these investments create or preserve more than 35,000 affordable units. LIHTC investments provided a reliable source of capital and served as a stabilizing influence on affordable housing.

In the past five years since Fannie Mae re-entered the market, the GSE has provided in excess of $3 billion in equity investments in properties throughout the country, including underserved markets, populations with unmet needs, such as Native American and farmworker communities, supportive housing development, and disaster-impacted areas.

"We want to thank our DUS lenders for their partnership and helping us support the multifamily market," said Rob Levin, SVP and Multifamily Chief Customer Officer, Fannie Mae. "Together with our lenders, we were active across all market segments while building a balanced portfolio."
