SC Housing announces the Hardest Hit Fund DPA Program, an FHA mortgage program for first-time homebuyers in specific zip codes within Richland, Lexington and Sumter counties. Designed to strengthen demand and stabilize house prices, the federal government Hardest Hit Fund (HHF) is providing funding for $15,000 down payment assistance (DPA) to each qualified recipient. This DPA will be completely forgiven if you remain in the house for at least ten years. Funding is limited and the program is offered on a first-come, first-served basis, so you will need to act quickly. Reservations opened on October 15, 2018.
To qualify for the Hardest Hit Fund Down Payment Assistance Program, properties must be in one of the following zip codes in Lexington, Richland or Sumter counties.
