*Grant is provided by the Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston through its Equity Builder Program. **Buyers eligible to receive assistance through the EBP are individuals and households earning no more than 80 percent of the area median income, based on their future address. To be eligible to receive assistance through the EBP, buyers must complete a home-buyer-counseling program administered by an agency designated by the EBP-approved member financial institution. The program must include pre-and post-purchase counseling. Interest would not accrue on the grant and the proceeds would only be due if the property is sold within the first five years of home ownership. May not be combined with any other type of down payment programs.
