Application forms will be available once the Open Enrollment period opens. 

The purpose of the Down Payment Assistance Program is to assist with the purchase of a home to be used as your primary residence (Maximum Award of $40,000).  Funds may be used to assist with closing costs and lower your first mortgage loan amount.  A lottery system will be used pulling names from the applications submitted during Open Enrollment.  Each applicant pulled during the lottery will have their application reviewed for eligibility to assure that they meet program criteria.  Once approved, eligible applicants will be given 45 days to secure a contract on a home.  Applicants must be able to qualify for a first mortgage from a lender.
