Downpayment Plus Program (DPP) – Funds will not be available again until March 2019
Downpayment Plus is a matching program that provides down payment and closing cost assistance for income-eligible homebuyers. The assistance is provided in the form of a forgivable grant paid on behalf of the borrower at the time the borrower closes on mortgage financing with a participating FHLBank Chicago member financial institution. Grants are forgiven on a monthly basis over a five-year retention period.
For DPP, the maximum grant amount is the lesser of $6,000 or three times the homebuyer’s net contribution. For DPP Advantage, the maximum grant amount is $6,000. The grant is recorded as second mortgage forgiven over five years.
