Financial Assistance for Homebuyers in Arizona

In an effort to assist homebuyers in 17 Arizona municipalities that have been hit by foreclosures, The Arizona Department of Housing (ADOH) working with the Arizona Home Foreclosure Prevention Funding Corporation (AHFPFC), has put together the Pathway to Purchase program.

ADOH has requirements that potential homebuyers must meet to be eligible for the P2P program:
  • They must use the home as their primary residence.
  • Their annual income must not exceed $92,984.
  • The purchase price of the property cannot be higher than $371,936.
  • The program is only available on Fannie Mae HFA Preferred Mortgages.

The P2P Program is strictly limited to the following cities:
