Great news for those who rent in Montgomery County. A County program that ran out of down payment assistance funds earlier this year is back again for 2017 – 2018. Qualifying home buyers can get up to $25,000 in down payment help, scaled to 40% of your current income. The maximum you can get is $25,000. It’s called the Montgomery Homeownership II Program.
Here’s details on how the program is structured and works:
- You can get up to $25,000 in Down Payment & Closing Costs Assistance per household
- Assistance you are eligible for is calculated based on 40% of your household income
- The Down Payment Assistance is structured as a 0% interest, deferred payment loan. This loan is issued in conjunction with a 30 year fixed rate mortgage through the Maryland Mortgage Program (MMP)
- There are income limits for eligibility. 1-2 person households can earn up to $130,320 per year. Get the current limits now.
