We participate in the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York's First Home Club (FHC) program, which is designed to assist moderate and low income first-time home buyers in the purchase of a home.

For every $1 you deposit and save in your dedicated savings account here at XCEL FCU, FHLBNY will deposit $4 in matching funds per household (not to exceed $7,500).* See chart below for example.
