Application Deadline: Saturday, September 26, 2015 12:00 AM

Funding Amount: $5,000

Overview

The Northampton County First-Time Homebuyer Program provides loans to eligible first-time buyers of Northampton County homes. These loans provide up to $5,000 to help with the cost of the house and closing costs.  We secure the investment in our communities by placing a lien on the property for 5 years or until the property is sold. For each year you stay in your home, 20% of the loan is forgiven. The loan is completely forgiven if the homebuyer stays in the house for at least 5 years.

Eligibility

Terms

Your annual household income cannot exceed 80% of the median income for the Lehigh Valley as determined annually by HUD. There must be an Agreement of Sale to apply.  You must obtain your primary mortgage from one of Northampton County's partner financial institutions in order to receive this loan. These institutions are local, have experience with the program, and have a strong record of meeting federal requirements for investment in our communities (CRA).  You must complete a HUD certified/affiliated Homebuyer Education Counseling Program from an accredited agency before closing.
