About the Program

When program funds are awarded to qualified local organizations, they will be able to create, continue and expand their existing down payment assistance programs. Homebuyers, who have completed a homeownership education program, may qualify for up to $15,000.00 for down payment and/or closing costs.

The awards are funded by the state’s document recording fee, which are used to expand the state’s supply of homeownership housing for low-and very low-income families and individuals, with particular focus on underserved populations.
