About The Bank

What is the Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston? Simply put, it is a bank for banks, credit unions, community development financial institutions, and insurance companies. Cooperatively owned by more than 440 New England financial institutions, the Bank provides reliable access to wholesale credit for these members and other qualified borrowers.

While New England's consumers cannot get a loan directly from us, it's very likely that the community bank nearest them is a member that can meet their credit needs.

Our Mission

The mission of the Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston is to provide highly reliable wholesale funding, liquidity, and a competitive return on investment to its member financial institutions in New England. We strive to consistently develop and deliver the best financial products, services, and expertise that support housing finance, community development, and economic growth, including programs targeted to lower-income households.
