Abstract: A Write-Your-Own (WYO) Company that wishes to participate in the MPPP must review the information listed in the Mortgage Portfolio Protection Program Agreement and complete the acknowledgement either agreeing to participate in the MPPP or electing to continue under just the WYO guidelines.

A lender wishing to obtain flood insurance through an MPPP participating insurance company must review the Financial Assistance/Subsidy Arrangement and acknowledge the terms by signing the notice of acceptance provided with the Arrangement. This acceptance is used to verify that the lender understands the terms of the agreement so that they can properly apply for flood insurance.
