Mortgage Down Payment and Closing Cost Program
The Mortgage Down Payment and Closing Costs Program helps Native American families become first-time homeowners. Because of the high cost of obtaining a mortgage loan many Native American families find it difficult to become homeowners. The Mortgage Assistance Program helps eligible families meet this problem by helping with grant assistance for down payment and closing costs.
To be eligible, clients must meet program guidelines established by the Native American Housing and Self-Determination Act (NAHASDA). If a client is determined eligible they will then be referred to a HUD certified lender.
