How does it work?
Each homebuyer will receive assistance, depending on credit qualifications, up to 4% of the initial principal balance of the mortgage loan.

The assistance funds may be used toward a down payment and closing costs. Closing cost assistance is funded directly by AHFC at the time of closing.
