FHLB Boston has committed up to $5 million in 2018 to subsidize the interest-rate on JNE advances. Members are eligible to receive up to $250,000 in interest-rate subsidy this year. JNE will be allocated through two funding periods. The first funding period kicks off January 12, 2018. The second funding period opens July 1, 2018.

The $5 million in interest subsidies will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis, and the full subsidy amount is expected to be utilized by mid-year. In the last two years, 72 members were able to take advantage of JNE. We hope you will be added to the list in 2018. Act now!
