Buying Your First Home?

Front Door

If you are buying your first home, you could get up to $5,000 towards your down payment and closings costs!* Through the First Front Door (FFD) program, a homebuyer grant program of the FHLBank Pittsburgh, qualified homebuyers can receive a 3-to-1 matching contribution.  That means that for every $1 you contribute, you can receive $3 in grant assistance, up to a maximum of $5,000.

To be eligible you must:

  • Be a first-time homebuyer (you have not owned a home in the past three years, or owned only as a married person and are now single)
  • Contribute personal funds to the down payment and closing costs
  • Have an income at or below 80 percent of the area median income at the time of FFD enrollment. Determine your income limit on the HUD website
  • If a student, work at least 30 hours per week
  • Be willing to complete four hours of homeownership counseling
  • Own the home for five years from the loan closing date in order to keep the full amount of the grant

*Specific eligibility requirements apply. Income calculation is based on the median income of the area in which the applicant currently resides. Terms and conditions are subject to underwriting and approval.
