Up To $15,000 First-Time Homebuyer Grants In Oregon

Oregon Housing and Community Services (OHCS) provides a first time home buyer grant that can amount to as much as $15,000 to aid with down payment and closing costs.




Oregon First Time Home Buyer GrantsWhen program funds are awarded to qualified local organizations, those organizations will be able to continue as well as expand their existing down payment assistance programs. Homebuyers, who are required and have completed a homeownership education program (see brochure here), may qualify for an Oregon first time home buyer grant up to $15,000.00, to be used for 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.
