One of the DPA programs offered by MSHDA is the MI Next Home Down Payment Assistance (DPA), and the program is designed specifically for repeat homebuyers. The assistance is provided with a zero-interest, non-amortizing loan with no monthly payments; it is only due upon sale or transfer of the property or if the first mortgage is refinanced or paid in full.
