The Welcome Home Program

Changes Lives by Helping People Buy Homes

The Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLB) has just announced the details for The Welcome Home Program for 2020!!

The Welcome Home Program offers grants to fund down payments and closing costs incurred in conjunction with the acquisition or construction of owner-occupied housing by low-and moderate-income homebuyers.

The grants are limited to $7,500 for homebuyers who are honorably discharged veterans, active duty military personnel, reservists, or surviving spouses of service personnel, and $5,000 for all other homebuyers.

As a member bank, we are authorized to reserve funds on behalf of our eligible clients on a first-come, first-served basis when the funds become available and until all funds are gone.
