This program offers a grant equaling 3% of the purchase price, up to $10,000 whichever is less, to be used for a down payment for a home in select markets.

No repayment is necessary.

This program offers a lender credit of up to $7,500 that can be used towards non-recurring closing costs, like title insurance and recording fees, or to permanently buy down the interest rate. The funds do not require repayment and may be used with the Down Payment Grant.

To help with the upfront costs of owning a home, the Affordable Loan Solution® mortgage or Freddie Mac Home Possible® mortgage are competitive, fixed-rate mortgages with down payments as low as 3%, requiring lower- cost – or even no – mortgage insurance. Income limits apply.
