Down Payment Assistance Programs
Is a Down Payment Assistance Program Right for You?
A Down Payment Assistance Program (DPA) gives out a variety of loans to help low or moderate-income people buy, repair or renovate a home in a rural area.
These loans include:
- US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Loans
- Tennessee Housing Development Authority (THDA) Loans
- Chenoa Funds
These DPA loans, often referred to as rural development loans, include the single family direct homeownership loan, the single family guaranteed homeownership loan, the rural repair and rehabilitation loan or grant and the mutual self-help loan. Though the terms and details of these loans differ, all offer very low effective interest rates (some are as low as 1%) and don’t require a cash down payment. However, to qualify, you need to have a decent credit history.

Why a DPA Loan?
Two significant benefits to a DPA loan include no down payment required and borrowers who qualify for a DPA Rural Development home loan have the flexibility to pay nothing out of pocket for a down payment. Additionally, the DPA loan allows borrowers to use a gift or grant to go toward their mortgage.
