Buying your first home?


Get up to $5,000 towards down payment and closing costs!

Plus, Brentwood Bank will waive $500 in application fees

Through First Front Door, the homebuyer grant program of FHLBank Pittsburgh, qualified homebuyers can receive a 3-to-1 matching contribution — that means that for every $1 you contribute, you can receive $3 in grant assistance, up to a maximum of $5,000.

  • Secure a mortgage through Brentwood Bank

  • Have an income at or below 80 percent of the area median income based on household size

  • Be willing to complete four hours of homeownership counseling
