THINGS TO KNOW

  • Down Payment Assistance is calculated as a percentage of the first mortgage loan amount
    • Example: A $375,000 mortgage with 2% assistance will receive $7,500 in down payment and/or closing cost assistance
  • First mortgage details:
    • All first mortgages are for a term of 30-years with a fixed rate set by the Home At Last™ program
    • Rates vary depending on the loan type and percentage of assistance provided
    • Loan options with down payment assistance will include a second mortgage for the amount of the assistance
  • Second mortgage details for loans that come with down payment assistance:
    • 30-year term with no interest and no payments
    • Assistance is forgiven at the end of the 30-year term (not prorated)
    • If a borrower sells, refinances, or prepays the down payment assistance prior to the end of the 30-year term, the entire amount of down payment assistance is repaid to Nevada Rural Housing Authority.
  • Home At Last™ may be used for the purchase or refinance of a primary residence.
  • FHA loans and manufactured home loans may not be manually underwritten.
  • Pair the Down Payment Assistance program with a Mortgage Credit Certificate (MCC) to maximize long-term affordability, plus the estimated tax credit can be used as additional qualifying income when purchasing the home, which means the MCC is also a great tool to lower debt-to-income ratios!

INCOME LIMITS – DOWN PAYMENT ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
Income limits for the loan and down payment assistance program are shown below. Conventional loans for borrowers earning at or below 80% of the area median income will receive lower mortgage insurance premiums and a lower interest rate. If pairing the MCC with down payment assistance, check the income limits for both programs – the lowest limit will apply when determining eligibility.
