The Homeownership Opportunity Program provides assistance for the purchase of existing or newly constructed single-family homes. The funds are available to assist individuals and families with closing costs and down payment.
Program is available for homes located in the incorporated cities, towns and unincorporated villages of Butler, Fillmore, Gage, Jefferson, Polk, Saline, Seward, Thayer and York Counties.
The program allows for a maximum of $15,000 in down payment assistance and/or closing costs. The funds are a deferred loan that does not incur interest and no payments are due during the first five years after purchase. Beginning in year six, the homebuyer will begin to repay the deferred loan with an interest rate of 3% amortized over ten years.
First-time homebuyers with household incomes below 100% of the area median income and who have obtained approval from a primary lender for the first mortgage are eligible to apply. Typical applicants are individual adults and young families.
Our team understands the needs of our community, we have services you might need, and we partner with organizations who can offer additional help.
