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. The maximum DPA is the lesser of $7,500 or 4% of the sales price.

  • Applicants must be repeat homebuyers statewide.
  • A minimum credit score of 660 is required.
  • Manufactured homes are not eligible under the program.
  • All adults in the household need not apply; only qualifying borrowers (that are repeat homebuyers) will be underwritten for credit, assets and income.
