In partnership with the Federal Home Loan Bank of Indianapolis (FHLBI), Independent Bank now offers the HomeBoost Minority Down Payment Assistance program, where qualified applicants could receive financial assistance up to $15,000* per household to put towards down payment, closing costs, and housing counseling costs.
To qualify for the HomeBoost program, applicant(s) must be a first-time homebuyer; be purchasing a primary residence in Indiana or Michigan; identify as a Black or African American, Asian, Hispanic, Indian American, or Alaska Native, and/or Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander; and have a household income at or below 120% of the local HUD Area Median Income based on family size.
