Dollar Bank Community Development

For 160 years, Dollar Bank has helped individuals and families fulfill their dream of owning a home.

Our success is founded in a dedicated staff that is knowledgeable of current marketplace issues affecting low and moderate income communities. From the start, our experienced counselors will work with you, one-on-one, to provide the resources you need to make obtaining a mortgage easier and to help you select the best mortgage option for you.

We can make home ownership possible with down payment and closing cost assistance, credit enhancement and repair as well as training for home ownership. Even once you're in your new home, our counselors are available if you should have any questions. Not only do we want to help you achieve home ownership, we want you to preserve it.

Home Ownership Basics

This free seminar provides an introduction to our programs for home ownership. Learn about the benefits and responsibilities of home ownership and the importance of good credit. Individuals will learn how to read and interpret a credit report. The session is held in a community setting for groups.
Low Cost Mortgage Options

A variety of mortgage options are available to help meet your individual needs. Our programs provide special interest rates for first-time homebuyers, home purchase and rehabilitation loans, or mortgages using qualified Section 8 housing voucher income options. We will work with you to select the mortgage option that works for you.
Home Ownership Program

Dollar Bank is the only financial institution in western Pennsylvania and northeast Ohio offering comprehensive in-house credit counseling and homebuyer education. When you enroll in our Home Ownership Program, you will be provided with the support you need to purchase a home. Whether you have had difficulty qualifying for a mortgage due to income, insufficient savings for a down payment or past and present credit difficulties, Dollar Bank’s Home Ownership Program will be a beneficial resource for you.

With the Home Ownership Program, you’ll start with a confidential one-on-one session with a Dollar Bank Credit Consultant. Together, we will review your employment history, credit profile and available funds to determine which area(s) could be strengthened through the program.

Have questions? You can find the answers using our Home Ownership Program FAQs.
Homebuyer Education Classes

Informational sessions are available to prepare you for the home-buying process. Your counselor will work with you to find the best mortgage payment to fit your finances. You will learn how to shop for a home, work with a real estate broker, and apply for and close on a mortgage. You must be enrolled in Dollar Bank’s Home Ownership Program to participate.
Down Payment and Closing Cost Assistance

Dollar Bank’s 3-2-1 Home Savings Plan can assist qualified families participating in the Home Ownership Program with down payment and closing costs associated with purchasing a home. For every $1 you put into a Dollar Bank savings account (up to a maximum of $1,000) we’ll give you $3. So when you save $1,000, with Dollar Bank’s help, you’ll actually have $4,000 to use toward purchasing a home.

This savings account can be used for hand money, mortgage application fees and other expenses due at closing. These funds can be used in addition to grants and gifts from other sources.
