Homebuyer Equity Leverage Partnership

We have exhausted our HELP funds for 2023

Current Member Maximum: $325,000
A $10,000 HELP subsidy from Centennial Bank and FHLB Dallas provided a down payment on a home for Conway, Arkansas, resident.

FHLB Dallas has set aside $6.5 million of its 2023 AHP funds for the Homebuyer Equity Leverage Partnership (HELP) program. Through member institutions, HELP assists low-income-qualified, first-time homebuyers with down payment assistance and closing costs.

Please note that several changes have been made. Please refer to the 2023 Funding Manual.

FHLB Dallas disburses HELP funds to members on a first-come, first-served basis, one homebuyer at a time. Members may upload disbursement request submissions through the GrantConnect portal starting January 3, 2023. Access to the portal is for member financial institutions only. Contact Community Investment if you have questions or are unsure about your access.

HELP funds are available until the funds are exhausted or until December 31, 2023, whichever occurs first.
