NEW YORK – April 4, 2019 – Bank of America (BofA) announced on Tuesday the rollout of a new $5 billion affordable homeownership initiative that includes downpayment or closing cost help for low- to moderate-income and multicultural homebuyers. The program will launch in the second quarter of this year.
BofA says the program should help more than 20,000 individuals and families over the next five years move toward homeownership.
Bank of America’s Neighborhood Solutions program includes a downpayment and closing cost assistance option, as well as low-downpayment mortgages and grants that can be applied to non-recurring closing costs.
BofA says it also plans to form strategic partnerships with real estate professionals and a national network of affordable housing nonprofit partners. The goal is to offer homebuyer education and counseling help to low- to moderate-income and multicultural homebuyers hoping to become homeowners.
