All Participant Memorandum (APM)
APM 23-10: Addition of Social Bond Content to Single Family Prospectuses
Published Date: 9/14/2023 5:15 PM

Ginnie Mae is announcing that it is revising its standard forms of prospectus for Single-Family Mortgage-Backed Securities (MBS), in order to detail attributes of Ginnie Mae MBS that Investors may use to determine if Ginnie Mae MBS meet their requirements to be deemed “Social Bonds”.

Single Family Ginnie Mae MBS are backed by residential mortgage loans that are insured or guaranteed by U.S. government programs offered by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Rural Housing Service (RHS) and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Office of Public and Indian Housing (PIH) . The insurance or guaranties extended under these programs reduce borrower credit risk, which promotes broader access to mortgage credit and/or less costly credit for borrowers, thereby expanding homeownership access and affordability among targeted populations (low-to-moderate income borrowers, veterans, senior citizens, rural communities, and/or tribal, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian communities). Ginnie Mae guarantees that security holders will receive all pass-through payments of principal and interest due to them. This guaranty furthers the purpose of promoting access to mortgage credit throughout the Nation (including central cities, rural areas, and underserved areas) by improving the distribution of investment capital available for residential mortgage financing. Additionally, Ginnie Mae provides monthly disclosure files that update the collateral characteristics for each MBS.

The Single-Family Forward MBS prospectuses affected by this announcement and their respective effective dates are listed below. The revised prospectuses that are effective October 1, 2023, are attached to this APM; those effective November 1, 2023 will be attached to a future APM. The prospectuses will be incorporated into the Ginnie Mae Mortgage-Backed Securities Guide, HUD Handbook 5500.3, REV-1 (MBS Guide) on their respective effective dates.
