The NPHS Opportunity Down Payment and Closing Cost Assistance Program provides up to $100,000 or 20% (whichever is less) in the form of a low-interest loan for each eligible household to be used towards down payment for the purchase of a home within the Inland Empire. The program is intended for low-to-moderate income first-time home buyers (80% AMI and below) who can afford monthly mortgage payments but do not have quite enough saved to pay the initial home purchase down payment and non-reoccurring closing costs to purchase a home.
The NPHS Opportunity Down Payment Loan is a 15 or 30 year loan that is deferred for the first 5 years with no payments or accrued interest, after which it becomes a 10 or 25 year fully amortized loan with a competitive interest rate available for eligible first-time buyers who intend to owner occupy their home during the duration of the loan. There is no prepayment penalty for borrowers who complete payments ahead of schedule. Funds are available on a first come, first served basis.
