Freddie Mac was created by Congress. Freddie Mac is known as FHLMC which stands for Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation. It performs an important role in the nation’s housing finance system – to provide liquidity, stability and affordability to the mortgage market. It helps provide liquidity (ready access to funds on reasonable terms) to the thousands of banks, savings and loans, and mortgage companies that make loans to finance housing.  To learn more about Freddie Mac, please visit www.freddiemac.com.
