Clients must contribute toward their home purchase, which will be matched by HOPE on a two-for-one basis up to a maximum of $2,000.  For example, if clients contribute $1,000, HOPE will provide $2,000 for a total of $3,000 available for the home purchase.  Both the clients and HOPE’s funds can be used for down payment and / or closing costs, and may not be adequate to cover the total purchase costs.  Clients cannot receive cash back at closing.
