About the MPF Program

The Mortgage Partnership Finance Program makes it easier for members of the Federal Home Loan Bank System to access the secondary mortgage market and make fixed-rate mortgages available in their communities through several unique credit risk sharing products for which members are paid credit enhancement fees. To participate in the MPF Program, a financial institution must be a member of a Federal Home Loan Bank that offers the MPF Program. Currently, new loan purchases are available through the following Federal Home Loan Banks: Boston, Chicago, Des Moines, New York, Pittsburgh, and Topeka.

The U.S. Congress created the FHLBank System, which includes 12 FHLBanks across the country, in 1932 to promote housing finance. The FHLBanks, which are wholly owned by their member institutions, provide housing finance to more than 8,000 member commercial banks, savings institutions, insurance companies, and credit unions.
