- Types Of Down Payment Assistance Programs
With the Grant product, the borrower receives a 30-year term, 0% interest rate (0% APR), no monthly payment Grant in the form of a second mortgage as follows below:
Option#1: 3.5% Down Payment Grant: Forgivable after 36 consecutive, on-time payments on the FHA first mortgage. This forgiveness period resets if the borrower makes a late payment, but the borrower has the full 30-year term to meet the forgiveness conditions. This mortgage may also be forgiven at the end of the 30-year term if the previous forgiveness condition has not been met.
Option#2: 5% Down Payment Grant: Forgivable after the initial 120 consecutive, on-time payments on the FHA first mortgage. This forgiveness period is terminated if the borrower has a payment that is 60+ days late, but the loan will remain with a 30-year term, 0% interest rate (0% APR), and no monthly payment. This mortgage may also be forgiven at the end of the 30-year term if the previous forgiveness condition has not been met, even if the borrower made payments on the first mortgage that were 60+ days late.
