Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLB) is Back! $5,000 Forgivable Grant!

Posted by: najirashid on Wednesday, January 27th, 2016

Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta first-time home buyer grant program is back! All buyers must contribute a minimum of $1,250 into buying their home, and those funds can actually be gifted as well. This grant is forgivable after 5 years. If a buyer sells the property prior to 5 years then the grant is forgiven at 20% per year. FHLB does not cap out the buyer’s debt ratio at 45% like most other grant programs. The buyer does their¬†home buying counseling over the phone for this program. FHLB can also be combined with other first-time home buyer grant programs. All banks or lenders do not participate in this program. You can contact me for a list of mortgage companies or lenders that participate.¬†
