Fairfield Homeownership Assistance Program

Financial Assistance for Homebuyers in Connecticut

The Town of Fairfield in Connecticut offers a federally funded Homeownership Assistance Program to help income-eligible, first-time homebuyers who don’t have the funds needed to cover the down payment or closing costs on a home.

The Homeowner Assistance Program offers individual assistance in two forms:

Down Payment Assistance
Under this program, Fairfield covers 50 percent of the down payment cost up to $30,000 through a, deferred, zero-interest loan. This loan does not need to be repaid until the borrower sells, refinances, or transfers the property, or passes away.

Closing Costs Assistance
The programs helps pay the usual closing costs associated with a mortgage transaction, up to a maximum of $2,500. Under this program, funds are provided as a grant and don’t need to be repaid. Funds for closing costs can be put toward attorney fees, the cost of appraisals, and/or prepaid interest and other financing.

Eligibility Requirements
In order to be considered eligible for the Fairfield Homeownership Assistance Program, all applicants must be first-time homebuyers (those who have not had ownership interest in a residential property within the past three years), who must attend and complete a HUD-certified first-time homebuyer counseling program. They must also fall within the program’s annual income limits, based on HUD limits and household size (shown below).

Property Guidelines
Properties eligible under the Homeownership Assistance Program include any owner-occupied, single-family, two-family or condominium unit in the town of Fairfield. The program is not meant for to aid in the purchase of investment properties.
