Huntington receives Home Possible RISE Award for helping reduce barriers to homeownership

COLUMBUS, Ohio, June 4, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- The Huntington National Bank has been nationally recognized by Freddie Mac as a 2024 Home Possible RISE Award winner. The RISE program (Recognizing Individuals for Sustained Excellence) honors excellence with Freddie Mac's affordable lending solutions – the Home Possible and HFA Advantage mortgage products.

"It's an honor to receive this award for our work to help people across our footprint achieve sustainable homeownership," said Carolyn Gorman, Huntington's Mortgage Lending Director. "Buying a home is one of life's biggest moments, and this recognition demonstrates our commitment to ensuring borrowers have equal economic opportunity and access on the journey to owning a home."

The Home Possible mortgage product offers more options and credit flexibilities to help very low- to low-income borrowers attain the dream of homeownership, including a down payment requirement of as little as 3%.

This solution works to expand access to home lending options by modifying eligible credit criteria and offering:

  • Expanded use of alternative credit
  • More debt evaluation flexibility
  • Low down payment requirements
  • Higher debt-to-income limits compared to traditional affordable lending programs

Home for Good is currently available in the following cities: Detroit, Grand Rapids and Warren (Michigan); Toledo, Cincinnati and Columbus (Ohio), Minneapolis and St. Paul (Minnesota), as well as select counties in Illinois and Wisconsin.
