What is HOP?

The Homeownership Opportunity Program (HOP)* grant helps first-time homebuyers with assistance for down payment, closing costs, and counseling costs. Up to $20,000 per household may be requested. Funds, made possible by FHLBank Indianapolis, are available on a first-come, first served basis.
To qualify for a HOP grant you must:
  • be a first-time homebuyer (no ownership of a principal residence within past three years ending on the date of the purchase of the property);
  • at or below 80% area median income (per HUD.gov);
  • purchasing a single-family home, condominium, duplex, or modular unit;
  • contribute a minimum of $500 towards the purchase of the home;
  • complete a required home buyer counseling course;
    • HOP funds may be used to cover the cost of counseling
