Owning a home may be easier than you thought possible with the CHF ACCESS Down Payment Assistance Program. The Program is designed to assist low-to-moderate income home buyers with the purchase of a home, by providing a means to finance most of the associated down payment.
The Program combines a 30-year fixed interest rate FHA First Mortgage Loan with down payment and/or closing cost assistance from CHF in the form of a low fixed interest rate Second Mortgage, making combined financing up to 99.5% of the purchase price possible. It is available for purchases of both new and existing homes, as long as the home will be the primary residence of the home buyer, and does not require that the home buyer be a first-time home buyer.
