Down Payment Assistance Program
The Down Payment Assistance Program provides qualified homebuyers a loan to assist with purchasing a home which will be their primary residence.
Homebuyer households must have income no greater than 80% of median income, adjusted for family size.
All Homebuyers must complete HUD approved homeownership counseling before assistance can be committed. A Certificate of Completion from the counseling agency must be submitted with the application. Contact The Louisville Urban League at (502) 585-4622 or The Housing Partnership Inc.at (502) 585-5451 for counseling.
Metro Government has revised its Down Payment Assistance Program increasing the amount of assistance.
We are now offering Metro Wide assistance, and homebuyers may qualify for a forgivable mortgage which will be forgiven over a five (5) year period of 10% of the purchase price of the home to a maximum of $10,000.
We will continue to provide maximum assistance in our 2009 Target Area neighborhoods, and homebuyers may still qualify for a forgivable mortgage which will be forgiven over a ten (10) year period of 20% of the purchase price of the home to a maximum of $20,000.
Our Department has also allocated closing cost assistance in the amount of up to $2,000 for down payment assistance programs; however, homebuyers must pay all prepaid costs from their own funds.
Homebuyers are responsible for obtaining primary financing with a fixed rate mortgage from a reputable lender.
A Housing Quality Standards inspection will be conducted by a Louisville Metro inspector before closing. All deficiencies must be corrected and verified by re-inspection prior to closing
A HUD-1 closing statement must be received two working days (48 hours) prior to closing.
Applications will be accepted at any time. Assistance is granted on a first come, first serve basis. For more information about the Down Payment Assistance Program, please call 574-3107.
