The Montgomery Homeownership Program is structured as a 0% interest, deferred payment loan for your Down Payment. You pay it back when you sell the home in the future, and no interest has accrued. This type of Down Payment Assistance is very popular. Here’s how the Montgomery Homeownership Program works:

  • You can get up to $40,000 in Down Payment & Closing Costs Assistance per household
  • Assistance you are eligible for is calculated based on 40% of your household income
  • The Down Payment Assistance is structured as a 0% interest, deferred payment loan. This loan is issued in conjunction with a 30 year fixed rate mortgage through the Maryland Mortgage Program (MMP)
  • There are income limits for eligibility. Get the current limits now

Don’t be afraid to ask even the simplest questions. You can also Pre-Enroll for express assistance to check your eligibility while getting how much home you can afford – without a credit check!

This program is available with no current expiration date published. The County may terminate the availability of funding at their discretion.
