Affordable housing assistance programs
One of the biggest challenges for first-time homeowners is meeting the cash requirement for down payment and closing costs. Government agencies, nonprofit organizations and some employers offer a variety of assistance programs, including down payment and closing cost assistance programs and grants. Bank of America participates in affordable housing assistance programs that can be combined with government loans to provide more options for clients with modest incomes3.
