Interest on Real Estate Brokers Trust Account (IOREBTA)

The IOREBTA Program was created pursuant to Public Act 91-314[1] and is amended by Public Act 92-69[2] with the main purpose to provide mortgage assistance for low- or moderate-income families or persons with down payments or any other appropriate housing subsidies by relying on the interest earned from residential and commercial escrow funds deposited by real estate brokers[3].

All banks participating in the Program are required to download and complete a Real Estate Escrow Deposit Account Application for each account that is opened and to remit the applicable accrued interest to the address listed below.  Alternatively, if a bank wants to wire the accrued interest directly to CHFA, please call the Finance Department at (860) 571-4318 or (860) 721-9501 for wiring instructions.
