FHLB Down Payment Assistance: Welcome Home Program Grant
The FHLB Welcome Home Program grant offers up to $15,000 for honorably discharged veterans, surviving spouses of military personnel, and active-duty military homebuyers. Other homebuyers can get up to $10,000. The grant money can be used for down payment or closing costs, making it easier for you to own a home.
FHLB Welcome Home Program Mortgage Eligibility & Qualification Requirements
To qualify for the grant:
- Your total household income must be at or below 80% of the Mortgage Revenue Bond (MRB) limit for the county and state where the property is located.
- You also need a fully executed purchase contract on an eligible property and at least $500 of your own funds to contribute towards the down payment and/or closing costs.
- If you are a first-time homebuyer, you need to complete a satisfactory homebuyer counseling course prior to loan closing. Note that applicants do not have to be first-time homebuyers.
- The eligible property must be your primary residence, and it can be a single-family, townhome, condominium, duplex, multi-unit (up to four-family units), or a qualified manufactured home (if taxed as real estate and affixed to a permanent foundation).
