FHLBank is excited to announce a new program within the TurnKey suite, the Homeownership Possibilities Expanded or HOPE. This program provides access to the “missing middle” or homebuyers that do not traditionally receive support but need assistance with down payment, closing costs or other eligible repairs. HOPE is NOT limited to first-time homebuyers and household income must be at, or below 150% of the Area Median Income (AMI). HOPE cannot be combined or transferred between other TurnKey programs.

HOPE is funded by FHLBank's increased voluntary funding commitment to further fulfill our housing mission beyond our Affordable Housing and Homeownership Set-aside Programs. This is a voluntary commitment of 2.5% above our regulatory contribution of 10% of our previous year’s earnings.
