2021 Community Support Statements

Homeownership Set-aside Program



“What we liked best about the HSP was that we could take advantage of current market interest rates, not special established interest rates, which can push first-time homebuyers out of the loan.” 

Dana Ezell  |  Republic Bank & Trust  |  SVP, Director of Mortgage Administration

FHLBank Topeka sets aside funds annually within the Affordable Housing Program (AHP) to assist very low, low-, and moderate-income first-time homebuyers.


The Homeownership Set-aside Program (HSP) provides down payment, closing cost and repair assistance to first-time homebuyers earning at or below 80% of the Area Median Income (AMI) for households purchasing or constructing homes in Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska and Oklahoma. The HSP is provided to households as a forgivable grant with a five-year retention period.


This program is a partnership with FHLBank members. Members work with qualified homebuyers, submit documents to FHLBank, provide the grant funds at closing and request reimbursement of the funds after closing.
