Down Payment Assistance

NEW PROGRAM REQUIREMENT


The HUD-approved homebuyer education class & counseling must be completed before  applicants may apply for down payment assistance.  An application will not be considered complete without certificates of completion for these.
For information on our classes & a link to a statewide schedule, please visit our homebuyer education page.

Overview


The Down Payment Assistance (DPA) program administered by Community Development Corporation of Utah (CDCU) is federally funded and is to be used to help income-eligible, first-time homebuyers purchase single family residences. Funds may only be used for down payment requirements and/or closing costs associated with a first mortgage. There are a limited number of deferred loans/grants available each year and qualified applicants will receive their financial award on a first come, first served basis—no waiting lists.  All information may not be current and is subject to change at any time.
