MBS Disclosure Enhancement: Special Eligibility Program

June 14, 2021

Fannie Mae, in conjunction with Freddie Mac, is enhancing its MBS disclosures to provide Special Eligibility Program information at the loan and pool level. Beginning August 16, the new attributes will be published for September 2021 issuances and will be available in the monthly disclosures beginning September 7, 2021. The enumerations for the Special Eligibility Program attributes are listed below:

  • F – HFA Preferred™ / HFA Advantage®
  • H – HomeReady® / Home Possible®
  • R – RefiNow™ / Refi Possible™
  • O – Other
  • 7 – Not Applicable
  • 9 – Not Available

Given Fannie Mae's introduction of the RefiNow option on June 5, 2021, we will temporarily publish disclosure files with this information for newly issued MBS on our website. The initial daily file will be published on June 21, 2021 and will include this information for all pools delivered from June 5, 2021 through June 18, 2021. Thereafter, the daily at-issuance disclosure files will include newly issued securities closed the previous business day.

The files will be made available on our website at 3:30 PM ET (unless otherwise communicated).
