Application and Forms

Important: The standard requirements of FHLB Des Moines credit and collateral policies apply. In addition, an approved Request for Funds is not a reservation of funds. Applications are funded on a “first-come, first-served” basis, subject to the availability of funds. A Request for Funds does not provide a rate-lock or reservation of an advance rate. Rates are determined at the time of the advance.
