Arizona Homebuyer Down Payment Assistance: HOME+PLUS

Financial Assistance for Homebuyers in Arizona

The HOME+PLUS Home Buyer Down Payment Assistance Program seeks to eliminate the hurdle of saving for a down payment, offering a pathway to homeownership by giving creditworthy renters who can qualify for a mortgage, but cannot afford the down payment and or closing costs, the funds to move forward. 

Available Assistance 

HOME+PLUS Home Buyer Down Payment Assistance Program provides a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage combined with down payment assistance (DPA) ranging from 0% – 5% depending upon the new underlying first mortgage. The DPA can be used toward the down payment, closing costs, or a combination of the two.  The DPA is only available in conjunction with a HOME+PLUS mortgage. 

 

Eligibility Requirements 
  • Available statewide, all Counties, all Cities, within Arizona. 
  • Borrower(s) annual income not to exceed $112,785.00 
  • One borrower must complete a home buyer education course before closing. 
  • Reduced mortgage insurance premiums on conventional (Fannie/Freddie) mortgages. 
  • All borrowers on the mortgage must have a minimum credit score of 640 or better. 

*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.
