Down payment assistance funds are provided as a 3 to 1 match of homebuyer contribution; buyers can receive up to $15,000 in assistance. Assistance is provided in the form of a loan– secured with a promissory note and recorded deed of trust.
The sale and purchase of a home is one of the most significant events that an individual will experience in their lifetime. It is more than the simple purchase of housing, for it directly impacts the hopes, dreams, aspirations, and economic destiny of those involved.It is for this reason that the Fair Housing Act and other federal and state laws were enacted to guarantee a right to a national housing market free from discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, disability, familial status, and national origin.
The Arizona Department of Housing (ADOH) takes an active role in the education and training of housing providers and housing consumers to ensure awareness of fair housing laws. Housing providers and housing consumers who would like to attend a free training on the Fair Housing Act and learn their responsibilities and rights under the law may contact ADOH at (602) 771-1000 and ask to speak with the Fair Housing Specialist.
