Since the Great Recession in 2008, the federal government has taken conservatorship of two major home mortgage providers, Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. In order to reestablish market stability, these two firms were converted from wholly private entities into government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs) under the conservatorship of the Federal Housing Administration (FHA).
