Dream Within Reach

Down Payment Assistance for First-Time Home Buyers

One of the biggest obstacles to buying a home for many people is coming up with a down payment. Fortunately, there are several down payment assistance programs available that can help first time home buyers overcome this obstacle. These programs provide financial assistance in the form of grants or loans that can be used to cover all or part of the down payment.

Some of the most popular down payment assistance programs include:

The Americans Dream Down Payment Initiative

Provides grants specifically for first-time buyers.

The good neighbor next door program

Offers a 50% discount on homes for eligible responders and educators.

The national homebuyers fund

Offers grants of up to 5% for down payment or closing costs.

Loan Types

Different Types of First Time Home Buyer Programs

FHA loans

    An FHA loan is a type of loan that is insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA). These loans are popular among first-time homebuyers because they typically have lower credit score requirements and lower down payment requirements than traditional loans.

    VA loans

      A VA loan is a loan that is guaranteed by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). These loans are available to eligible veterans, active-duty service members, and surviving spouses. VA loans often have lower interest rates and lower down payment requirements than traditional loans.

      USDA loans

        A USDA loan is a loan that is guaranteed by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). These loans are available to individuals who are looking to purchase a home in a rural area. USDA loans often

        Conventional loans

          Conventional loans are not backed by the government, but they are still an option for first-time homebuyers. These loans often require higher credit scores and down payments than other programs, but they can also offer lower interest rates and more flexible terms.

          Down payment assistance programs

            Down payment assistance programs are available through many First Time Home Buyer Programs. These programs offer financial assistance to help buyers cover their down payment and closing costs. They may be funded by the government, non-profit organizations, or private lenders.
