Homeland Security Foundation of America (HSFA) Partners with Access

National Mortgage on Their Heroes Come First Program

HSFA's Office of Health and Human Services (HHS) incorporates the Heroes Come First program
into its mission through a new public-private partnership with Access National Mortgage.

Reston, VA, July 12, 2018 --( The Homeland Security Foundation of America (HSFA) Office
of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced today its plans to incorporate the Heroes Come First
Program into its mission through a new public-private partnership with Access National Mortgage.

Organization officials say this is another big step in maintaining its commitment to bringing valuable
HHS services and programs to the public.

“The Heroes Come First program is directly in line with our new framework for HHS,” said HFSA
President and Chairman Eric Brown. “And, it's more than just a professional commitment, it's deeply
personal. My family has a long tradition of serving America dating back to my granddad serving in the
U.S. Navy back in World War II. This is an important program, and we are proud to present it to our staff,
volunteers, donors and the citizens we serve in all U.S. congressional districts. We look forward to having
the Heroes 1st Team at our next active shooter awareness town hall meeting on 17 July at the Hilton in
Columbus, OH.”

The program offers financial rewards to American heroes, which includes all current and former
Firefighters, Law Enforcement Officers, Military Personnel (active, reserves and veterans), Healthcare
Workers, Emergency Medical Services Workers and Education Professionals. Heroes Come First is one
of several programs slated to launch as a part of the foundation's new HHS Mission Template, which
focuses heavily on family services, medical and mental health, nutrition and pandemic preparedness.

Heroes Come First Team Leader Joe Kelly said that the Heroes Come First program was created to offer
meaningful assistance to heroes as a way of saying thank you for their service. The Company also formed
its Hero First Team, a group of lending professionals passionate about serving heroes to provide
dedicated support to heroes and their families. The Heroes Come First Program through Access National
Mortgage enables participants to receive up to $2,000 when they buy, refinance or sell a home.

In addition to providing financial rewards to heroes, Access has pledged significant periodic donations to
HSFA under this public-private partnership to help further HSFA's HHS mission.

“We're proud to team up with the Homeland Security Foundation of America,” said Kelly. “This is an
important partnership, which will help us expand our reach into the communities HSFA serves. We're
very excited about helping even more heroes accomplish their mission of home ownership.”
