Two New England housing issuers the Massachusetts Housing Finance Agency (HFA) and the New Hampshire Housing Finance Authority will be issuing modest amounts of fixed-rate debt to finance single-family mortgages. In its 100th series of single-family housing bonds, the Massachusetts HFA will issue approximately 50 million dollar for single-family mortgage loans. The New Hampshire HFA is expected to sell 40 million dollar in single-family mortgage acquisition revenue bonds to refund maturing principle and prepayments. The remainder will be used to purchase newly originated mortgage loans.
