Community Partners Products


At Tidewater Home Funding, we are committed to supporting families and individuals who make their living serving others in the community. As part of this commitment, we offer a unique financial opportunity for current or retired law enforcement officers, educators, health care workers, firefighters, and other first responders who are purchasing a home.

We can assist homebuyers in accessing matching funds for the down payment, closing costs, and rehabilitation costs incurred when purchasing a home. For every $1 you contribute to your home purchase, you can receive $4 in matching funds, up to $7,500. 

Funding is available to qualified borrowers that meet product and income eligibility requirements, including first-time homebuyers or families and individuals that currently own a home or have
previously owned a home.*

In addition to meeting eligibility requirements, the homebuyer must:

  • Contribute at least $1,000 toward the purchase of the home
  • Occupy the home as a primary residence for at least five years
  • Complete a homebuyer education and financial literacy course specified by FHLBank Atlanta

Please contact one of our mortgage advisors to determine if you are eligible for Community Partners funding and to begin your application process.
