Pasco County's Programs for Homebuyers

Community Development provides assistance to income-eligible buyers toward the purchase of a home in Pasco County if you have not owned a home in the last 3 years. Applicant households who make less than 120% of Area Median Income (AMI) for the Tampa Bay Area may apply for assistance. Funding for both programs is based on current availability for each income level.

Pasco County Community Development Down Payment Assistance (DPA) program is open effective March 25th, 2021

All interested homebuyers will need to contact Suncoast Housing Connections to attend a Home Buyer Education Class.  Homebuyers must work with a Community Development approved lender.
