Down Payment Assistance Programs: Florida Housing

Disclaimer: Only through participating lenders

Florida Housing offers down payment and closing cost assistance in the form of a second mortgage loan to assist eligible homebuyers with their down payment and closing costs. Down payment assistance is only available when used with Florida Housing's first mortgage loan. Down payment assistance is NOT available as "stand alone" down payment assistance. Florida Housing offers the following Down Payment Assistance Programs to eligible buyers:


The Florida Assist (FL Assist)


  • Offers up to $10,000 on FHA, VA, USDA and Conventional Loans.
  • 0%, non-amortizing, deferred second mortgage.

The FL Assist is not forgivable. Repayment is deferred, except in the event of the sale, transfer, satisfaction of the first mortgage, refinancing of the property or until such a time the mortgagor ceases to occupy the property at which time, the Florida Assist will become due and payable, in full.


The Florida Homeownership Loan Program (FL HLP) Second Mortgage


  • Offers $10,000.
  • 3% fully-amortizing, second mortgage.
  • 15-year term.

The FL HLP Second Mortgage carries a monthly payment. The remaining unpaid principal balance (UPB) is deferred, except in the event of the sale, transfer of deed, satisfaction of the first mortgage, refinancing of the property or until such a time the mortgagor(s) ceases to occupy the property as his/her primary residence at which time, the FL HLP Second Mortgage will become due and payable, in full.

Since the FL HLP Second Mortgage carries a monthly payment, this payment may need to be considered in a borrower’s debt-to-income (DTI) ratio when credit underwriting.


3%, 4% and 5% HFA Preferred and HFA Advantage PLUS Second Mortgage


Borrowers utilizing these down payment and closing cost programs receive 3%, 4% or 5% of the total loan amount in a forgivable second mortgage. This second mortgage is forgiven at 20% a year over its 5-year term when used with Florida Housing’s conventional HFA Preferred for TBA or HFA Advantage for TBA first mortgage products. The “PLUS” Second Mortgage is available only with these conventional first mortgage products.

 Community Partners Loan Pool

The North Carolina Housing Finance Agency provides financing to local governments and nonprofit organizations to build and rehabilitate homes for low-wealth North Carolinians. The Community Partners Loan Pool (CPLP) provides qualified home buyers with down payment assistance:
