Why FHLB Des Moines?

Federal Home Loan Bank of Des Moines is a cooperative owned by you – our members. Our mission is to help local financial institutions like yours fulfill the dreams of aspiring homeowners. 

We provide the funds that drive mortgage lending, economic development and affordable housing in the communities we serve. Results aren’t measured in our profits – it’s measured in the new possibilities we can create together: from the funding for a family’s first home to the restoration of a town treasure.

When you work with FHLB Des Moines, you have the opportunity to participate in vital community-building programs, including the Mortgage Partnership Finance® Program. With the MPF® Program, you can access the secondary market for selling your home loans and managing your risk profile.
