The online application portal for the Down Payment Assistance Program is open. You must use a city-registered mortgage lender. If you already have a lender, they can register with the city here.
Do you need assistance to purchase a home?
State and federally funded grants are available to very low-, low-, and moderate-income households through city-registered mortgage lenders for homes purchased within city limits. Priority will be given to very low- and low-income households.
Please note: We only accept applications from city-registered mortgage lenders on the buyer's behalf.
- Once your application is submitted, staff will schedule an appointment to finish your paperwork.
- Please keep us informed as you schedule your closing date and keep in mind the Down Payment Assistance approval process may take up to 30 days.
- Assistance will be provided in the form of a check to be presented at closing. Checks are made payable to both the borrower and the title company, and will be made available for in-person pickup at Orlando City Hall.
