Housing New Mexico

The New Mexico Mortgage Finance Authority is a self-supporting quasi-governmental entity that provides financing to make quality affordable housing and other related services available to low- and moderate-income New Mexicans. Using funding from housing bonds, tax credits and other federal and state agencies, MFA provides resources to build affordable rental communities, rehabilitate aging homes, supply down payment assistance and affordable mortgages, offer emergency shelter and administer rental assistance and subsidies. MFA partners with lenders, REALTORS, nonprofit organizations, local governments, tribal communities and developers throughout the state to make these programs and services available to all eligible New Mexicans.

Our Mandate

In 1975 the New Mexico state legislature created the New Mexico Mortgage Finance Authority, a public body politic and corporate, separate and apart from the state, constituting a governmental instrumentality, with the power to raise funds from private investors in order to make such private funds available to finance the acquisition, construction, rehabilitation and improvement of residential housing for persons and families of low- and moderate-income within the state.

The History of MFA

From its rocky beginning in 1975 to the present time of unprecedented growth, MFA has become a thriving agency providing a full spectrum of housing programs. Since 1975, MFA has helped more than 475,000 New Mexicans find quality affordable housing.
