Atlantic City Down Payment Assistance Program

The Atlantic City Down Payment Assistance Plan helps eligible applicants secure safe and affordable housing. 

Available Assistance 
The Program may provide down payment assistance up to 10% of the purchase price and up to $5,000.00 of eligible closing cost for a combined total amount not to exceed $30,000.00. 

All down payment and closing cost assistance is offered to the homebuyer as a deferred 0% interest loan, secured by a mortgage, to be repaid to the program based on the proceeds from resale, refinance or any changes in title and a portion of the appreciation as detailed in the recapture provision. 

Eligibility Requirements 
To be considered eligible, applicants must be Atlantic County residents who have lived there for the previous 12 months or are employed in Atlantic City. They must be first-time homebuyers who have not owned a home for the previous 2 years, and must have the ability to obtain a fixed rate mortgage through NJHMFA approved lenders*. They must meet established income guidelines. 

Eligible Properties include single-family properties including townhouses and condominiums located within Atlantic City, New Jersey. The sales price of property cannot exceed $300,000.00, and the property must be primary residence and maintained as same. 

*Seller-funded down payment programs were eliminated in the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008, but State and local government agencies are still permitted to help borrowers finance their homes with second mortgages and grants. These agencies set different requirements that a borrower needs to meet in order to qualify for the grant programs, such as property location, and purchase price, and income limits.
