Downpayment Plus® Program
Welcome to the Downpayment Plus® program. The Downpayment Plus
(DPP™ ) is a downpayment and closing cost assistance program for low
and moderate income homebuyers, funded as a set aside through the
Affordable Housing Program (AHP) of the
Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago (FHLB). The Illinois League of Financial
Institutions administers the program.
The maximum amount of the grant is $8,000. The only
exception to the amount is if the first mortgage amount is less than
$32,000, then the grant will be reduced to 25% of the first mortgage
