Should you buy or keep renting?

We’re with you!


It's a great time to buy because right now, qualified buyers can get up to $6,000 in down payment and closing cost assistance through the Down Payment Plus grant.

Whether you're a first time home buyer, renter or looking for your next home, you may benefit from the Down Payment Plus grant. The assistance is offered in the form of a forgivable grant paid on behalf of the borrower at the time of the closing. The grant can be used for down payment, closing costs or rehab costs. The amount of the grant available varies yearly and is distributed on a first-come, first-served basis until the funds are exhausted.
