MPF® Products

The FHLBNY offers two different MPF conventional loan products, allowing the Participating Financial Institution (PFI) to choose the extent of credit risk they are comfortable with. With these products, the PFI originates, closes, and then sells the loans to the FHLBNY. Regardless of the MPF product used, PFIs retain all typical origination, closing, and miscellaneous fees, while the FHLBNY pays PFIs Credit Enhancement (CE) and servicing fees.

PFIs can deliver fixed-rate conforming conventional mortgage loans with terms from 5 to 30 years on owner-occupied and second homes. Property types include 1-4 unit homes, manufactured homes, condos, and Planned Unit Developments (PUDs). In addition, PFIs have a choice of remittance types: Actual/Actual, Actual/Actual Single Remittance, and Scheduled/Scheduled. The HLB also offers an MPF government loan product without the risk-sharing feature. A servicing-released alternative is available for all MPF products to maximize the value of the loans sold.

MPF conventional products require PFIs to hold risk-based capital equal to the amount of the CE obligation. PFIs are required to purchase activity-based HLB  stock, equal to 4.5% of any new MPF delivery commitments, and PFIs are also required to post collateral equal to the CE obligation. The PFI may also sell Government Loans to the FHLBNY. Information about Government Loans will be furnished upon request.
