Down Payment Assistance

Down Payment Assistance Program

Owning your home no longer has to be a dream! With two Down Payment Assistance Programs (DPA), income qualified home buyers can get a low-interest loan for the down payment on their home. These loans cover the down payment and closing costs and come with a minimal interest rate. The San Luis Valley Housing Coalition offers these loans so community members may live in safe, decent, affordable homes and still afford to live life. 

Your loan through this program will be secured by a Deed of Trust against your home. The monthly payments you make are deposited into a Revolving Loan fund so that others may benefit from the program as well.

Our DPA programs now offer higher income limits, helping households up to 100% Area Median Income (AMI)!!
