First National Bank Expands Affordable Mortgage Programs
FNB Enhances its Commitments to Low- to Moderate-Income Communities and Economic Equality with New Refinance Programs and Increased Closing Cost Assistance Offered through eStoreTM and Convenient Locations

First National Bank, the largest subsidiary of F.N.B. Corporation (NYSE: FNB), announced today that it has expanded its Affordable Mortgage offerings with two new refinance programs, Fannie Mae RefiNowTM and Freddie Mac Refi PossibleSM. Available to homeowners with income at or below the area median income (AMI) for their market, these specialized programs make it more accessible and affordable to refinance a current Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac mortgage at a lower rate and a lower payment, while also providing a credit of up to $500 to cover appraisal costs.

The new refinance programs add to the range of Affordable Mortgage programs available to consumers throughout FNB’s footprint, including its proprietary affordable Home Ownership and Home Improvement and Rehabilitation Programs. FNB also is increasing its Closing Cost Assistance Grant to $5,000 in April 2022, advancing its commitment to borrowers who have low or moderate income or who are purchasing a home in a low- to moderate-income (LMI) community.

“We continue to enhance our Affordable Mortgage offerings with new programs and increased digital access through eStore as part of our ongoing commitment to provide solutions and education that make homeownership attainable for more families,” said Joseph Cartellone, Executive Vice President and Director of Mortgage Services.

The Closing Cost Assistance Grant further builds on FNB’s overarching focus on promoting economic equality since the majority of the LMI areas where it is available include historically underserved minority communities. The grant is currently offered in Pittsburgh, PA; Johnstown, PA; Harrisburg, PA; Cleveland, OH; Youngstown, OH; Baltimore, MD; Raleigh, NC; Charlotte, NC; Winston-Salem, NC; and Charleston, SC, with plans for additional markets to be considered in the future.

FNB’s expanding Affordable Mortgage programs align with its broader mission to improve the quality of life in the communities it serves. As part of its efforts, FNB continues to focus on increasing access to bank services and resources, including financial literacy and an evolving suite of products.

Customers can digitally access FNB’s mortgage products and services, engage with financial education content, and conveniently schedule an appointment to speak with an FNB mortgage expert through the Bank’s proprietary eStoreTM at or in the FNB Direct Mobile Banking app. To review the complete eligibility requirements for RefiNow and Refi Possible, please contact an FNB mortgage representative or visit the Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac websites.
