First Home Club

The First Home Club is a program is for anyone looking to buy in NYS. The Federal Home Loan Bank created this match savings program. So for every $1 you save they match $4 up to $7,500. The program is for those just beginning who need time to save and look to really see where they are in the process. The program is a minimum of 10 months and a max of 2 years. For example, if you chose to do the program for 10 months you’d have to save $188 a month for 10 months and then you’d be done with the program and ready to move on to searching for your new home.
