Downpayment Assistance Program

FirstDown Nebraska is a statewide initiative funded by FHLBank Topeka and managed in collaboration with First National Bank Omaha. The program provides $4,000 in down payment and closing cost assistance to eligible Nebraska borrowers who meet specific conditions. All borrowers must be referred by a Nebraska Housing Developer Association non-profit member and attend REACH homebuyer education training.
