First Time Homebuyer Down Payment & Closing Cost Assistance Program

Achieving the Dream

The First Time Homebuyer Down Payment and Closing Cost Assistance Program (PDF) helps low- to moderate-income individuals and families achieve the American Dream of owning a home. It is often difficult for potential homeowners to come up with enough money for a down payment or closing costs on the house they want to purchase. With this program, the Housing Authority will match up to 50% of the total down payment/closing costs not to exceed $5,000.

The Process

After you found your home that you want to purchase contact the Resident Initiatives Department to schedule an appointment for Pre-Purchase Homeownership Counseling.

If qualified the Housing Authority will match the money you've saved to close on your new home up to $5,000 or half of your closing costs. 1% of your contribution must be from you, but the rest could be a gift. Money must be available at the time of closing.
