 Under this program, the Hallandale Beach CRA (HBCRA) provides a maximum amount of $80,000 in down payment assistance for the purchase of a first home in the CRA district. These funds are available to affordable housing buyers (whose income is between 50% and 120% of the Broward County median income guidelines) to be used for gap funding and closing costs. The program also provides an incentive of up to $10,000 in down payment assistance for workforce housing buyers whose income is above 120% but not more than 140% median. An additional $5,000 incentive is available for first responders, teachers and nurses.

The rent schedule is below. Davis Landings units have different rents based on income restrictions for certain apartments and also on the income category of the applicant household which is based on income and family size. You will be called from the Waiting List based on unit availability and if the available unit matches your household size and stated pre-tax income.

Please contact our office at (561) 318-8442 if you are unable to complete the online form.

The Waiting List Application Form must include family size and pre-tax combined household income. That way I can determine which apartment (size and rent rate) you are eligible for. If your income changes or contact information changes, please contact the office so that your Wait List application form can be updated.

The Waiting List is kept until December 31 of each year and then purged. The Waiting List is re-opened the second Thursday in January each year.

 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:

 Up to 20% of the sales price, not to exceed $30,000 (effective May 1, 2018), when using a NC Home Advantage Mortgage™.

Up to 10% of the purchase price when using a USDA’s Section 502 loan.

CPLP assistance is structured as a 0% interest, deferred second mortgage. The term of the CPLP loan matches the term of the first mortgage. The CPLP Loan has no monthly payment and is typically repaid when the home is sold or at the end of the loan term.

 Borrowers may combine a CPLP loan with the NC 1st Home Advantage Down Payment or the NC Home Advantage Tax Credit as well as with other down payment assistance loans or grants.

 The program is available through local community partners.
