Little Rock, Arkansas, resident Thomas Treweek is all smiles after moving his family into their new home purchased with assistance from FHLB Dallas’ HELP program.

FHLB Dallas has set aside $15.5 million of its 2024 AHP funds for the Homebuyer Equity Leverage Partnership (HELP) program. Through member institutions, HELP assists income-qualified, first-time homebuyers with up to $20,000 in down payment assistance and closing costs.

Please note that several changes have been made. Please refer to the  2024 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 2, 2024. 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, 2024, whichever occurs first.
