Our agency works with several state and federal agencies as well as city and county government programs aimed at meeting affordable housing needs. Often the programs are offered in combination with mortgages geared toward first-time home buyers. The types of closing cost and down payment assistance varies by program. For instance, one program provides down payment assistance up to 20% of the sales prices with the maximum amount of $30,000 available.
