CHFA Down Payment Assistance Program

The Colorado Housing and Finance Authority is a statewide network of participating lenders that offer:
• 30-year, fixed rate government and conventional mortgage loans to purchase a home
• Down payment assistance grants and second mortgage loans for down payment and/or closing cost assistance
• Available to first-time and non-first-time homebuyers

DPA Grant:
• Up to 3 percent of your first mortgage loan amount
• No repayment required

DPA Second Mortgage Loan:
• Up to 4 percent of your first mortgage loan amount
• Repayment deferred until certain events, such as payoff of first mortgage loan, sale or refinance of your home, or if home no longer owner-occupied


*Please note: CHFA down payment assistance can only be used when paired with a first mortgage loan under a CHFA program. Higher interest rates apply.
