Financing Assistance

Lending a Helping Hand

Downpayment Plus Program

If you’re applying for a mortgage, you may be eligible for a down-payment assistance grant of up to $10,000 through the Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago (FHLBC). The grant program, called Downpayment Plus, provides income-eligible homebuyers assistance with a down payment, closing costs or homebuyer education costs.

To be eligible, you must meet eligibility and income requirements, including:

  • Contributing at least $1,000 toward your home purchase1
  • Using the home as your primary residence for five years2
  • Attending pre-purchase homebuyer education and counseling seminars
  • Earning less than or equal to 80 percent of the area median income, based on income guidelines and family size published annually by the U.S. Department of Housing and Human Development (HUD)3

Funds for the Downpayment Plus grant are limited and will be awarded until funds are depleted. The maximum grant is the lesser of $10,000 or 25% of the first mortgage amount, and up to $500 of the grant may be used to offset required counseling that is required for the grant's approval. Advertised programs are subject to change at any time. Not all applicants are eligible for the products offered, and qualifications apply. Just ask us for details.
