Homebuyers Programs

Homebuying Assistance

The maximum amount that a buyer can qualify for has been increased to $50,000. The amount of assistance is based on the buyer’s income.

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.

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.

Lenders must attend a training in order to participate in the Down Payment Assistance Program. All interested lenders will need to email Brian Jordan to sign up for lender training.

To make sure you are kept up to date on the latest information regarding this and other Community Development programs, please sign up for notifications.
