Down Payment Assistance Loans

Close the Gap on Your Down Payment and Closing Costs with a DPA Loan

Our Down Payment Assistance Loan Program provides no interest loans of up to $15,000 for first-time home buyers to cover a portion of the down payment and/or closing costs associated with the purchase of their home.

    • Property must be a single-family home, condominium, or manufactured home. Manufactured homes must comply with conventional first mortgage lending standards.
  • Have completed or are willing to complete a HUD-certified Home Buyer Education course.  (Available through NeighborWorks Umpqua)  

    Income Requirements:

    • Total Household Gross Income must be below 100% Area Median Limits (see chart below)
    • Liquid Assets cannot exceed $20,000 after closing (unless more is required by lender)
