The Homeownership Assistance Program has paused acceptance of new applications
The program may reopen at a later date if more funds become available.
The Homeownership Assistance Program (HAP) provides down payment and closing costs assistance to first-time and first-generation homebuyers for the purchase of a home within counties impacted by Hurricanes Florence and Matthew. The program strives to:
- Increase homeownership to support long-term resilience and the economic viability of communities impacted by recent hurricanes;
- Incentivize home-ready renters to become first-time homebuyers and reside in storm-impacted communities to reduce negative economic consequences to those communities; and
- Improve homeownership opportunities for low- and moderate-income (LMI) households.
