CollapseWhat steps are involved?

These steps serve as a general example of the process, which may differ based on individual circumstances. Your local representative will provide more detailed steps when you connect.

Step 1: Get a preapproval — you’ll know your estimated price range before you search for a home.

Step 2: Take homebuyer education classes — learn what you need to know, from finding and financing a home to managing the financial responsibilities of homeownership, and more.

Step 3: Search for a home — work with a real estate agent to find a home. Your preapproval will help your agent show you homes in your price range.

Step 4: Sign a purchase contract — after you’ve found a home and made an offer, put it in writing.

Step 5: Qualify for the program — now you’re ready to see if you qualify for down payment assistance grants.

Step 6: Move forward with home financing — work with your lender through the mortgage approval process that takes you to closing.

Step 7: Close on your new home — celebrate the final step, when you become a homeowner.

CollapseCan I apply?

You can apply for the program if you are approved for home financing and you meet the income restrictions. Whether this is your first home or you are ready to buy again, there are a number of homebuyer education requirements that must be completed prior to the home purchase.

CollapseWhat type of home can I purchase with the grants?

The grants must be used to purchase a primary, owner-occupied residence in the approved area.

CollapseIf I don’t see an event in my area, does that mean grants are not available?

Down payment assistance may still be available. Go to “Check Cities” to see which areas still have grants available. If your city is still listed, contact the local nonprofit to start the process.
