Down Payment Assistance Programs

Many lenders are now offering down payment assistance, either directly or through a non-profit partner. The government also has several consumer down payment assistance programs, such as the Federal Home Loan Bank (Affordable Housing Programs). The programs provide consumer value in different ways, some of them provide financial assistance after completion of a homeownership class and others do it through matching funds. The matching funds can sometimes be 2 to 1. Each program has benefits and its worth investigating what option is best for you. downpaymentresource.com maintains an inventory of thousands of down payment assistance programs across the country. All these resources are free and the typical benefit is approximately $10,000. This number could be higher in some housing markets.
