Down Payment and Closing Cost Assistance
My HOME Program
Through HUD's HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) the County has acquired over $1 million to use toward Down Payment and Closing Cost Assistance loans. The County's Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) has recently finalized the program guidelines and will be announcing the official start of the program this week.

- DPA is NOT restricted to specific zip codes. Under My HOME all areas of Prince George's are eligible.
- Applicant must be a first time home buyer, defined as "not owning a home within last three years."
- The amount of down payment assistance (DPA) is 5% of the property sale price.
- Buyer must contribute 1.75% of sale price toward transaction or 50% of liquid assets over $3,000 which ever is greater.
