Local Grant Programs For Down Payment Assistance

by: Ryan Gilliam

For those looking to purchase a new home and take advantage of local grant programs for down payment assistance, April, May, and June of 2021 will be a great time to qualify.  On April 1st, the Arizona Department of Housing announced that the Pathway to Purchase grant program is back.  This program has been available in the past but ran out of money and was not available for 3 years.  But for the next three months (ending on June 30th, 2021) you may be able to qualify for a grant up to $20,000 to cover your down payment and closing costs.

Below are the Details of the Program, if you have any questions or want to look into qualifying, call me at my office at 480-635-3035.
