Available Assistance
Under the county’s Home Buyer Loan Program, first-time homebuyers can apply for primary and GAP mortgages, made available to income-qualified homebuyers. The maximum loan amount for a Primary loan is $450,000.00.

They must be 18 years or older and must complete a Homebuyer Education program. To be deemed eligible, applicants’ household income must fall under 80% of the KMHI.

Property Guidelines
Any home purchased with program funds must be located on the island of Kaua'i and be situated outside of the FIRM 100-year flood boundary.
