Down payment assistance

What you need to know

This is perhaps the most meaningful benefit offered by the VHDA. Qualified first-time buyers can receive up to 2.5% of a home’s purchase price to apply to a down payment — no repayment required. The grant is combined with a VHDA loan, and household income limits are considered.
