Down Payment Assistance
for Homeownership

HOW Program

Housing Our Workforce (HOW) provides down-payment assistance to homebuyers earning more than 80% and up to 120% of the area median income.

How does the program work?

HOW provides a two-to-one match of down payments made at time of purchase by eligible homebuyers. For example, if a homebuyer makes a $12,500 down payment, as shown on their purchase and sale agreement, FHLBank Boston will provide a match up to $25,000.
