Federal Home Loan Bank Act

The Federal Home Loan Bank Act is a United States federal law passed in 1932 under President Herbert Hoover in order to lower the cost of home ownership.

It established the Federal Home Loan Bank Board to charter and supervise federal savings and loan institutions. It also created the Federal Home Loan Banks which lend to S&Ls in order to finance home mortgages.

The act was notably amended by Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery and Enforcement Act of 1989, which transferred regulation of thrifts to the Office of Thrift Supervision.
