The Connecticut Housing Finance Authority (CHFA) offers several down payment assistance programs for first time buyers.
For most borrowers, this assistance program is not a grant, and the loan is at regular market interest rates and must be paid back over time.
There are a few DAP programs which provide reduced interest rates, and in effect provide a grant for the difference between the regular interest rate and the reduced rate. These programs are the Homeownership Program, the Home of Your Own Loan Program, the Police Homeownership Mortgage Program and the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Homeownership Program.
