Bank of America’s Community Homeownership Commitment™

Good news for aspiring homeowners! Bank of America’s Community Homeownership Commitment™ is bringing together products and resources that can help modest-income borrowers buy homes of their own. By combining down payment assistance and closing cost help with a low down payment mortgage, you may find that a new home is within reach.

Home grant programs

Our America’s Home Grant® program offers a lender credit of up to $7,500 that can be used towards non-recurring closing costs, like title insurance and recording fees, or to permanently buy down the interest rate. The funds do not require repayment.

Our Down Payment Grant program offers a grant equaling 3% of the home purchase price, up to $10,000, to be used for a down payment in select markets. The grant program is not available with all mortgage products. The funds do not require repayment.

Freddie Mac Home Possible® mortgage is a fixed-rate loan with a down payment as low as 3%. Mortgage insurance is required; however, it’s at a reduced cost from most conventional loans. Income limits apply.
