HOME PLUS Home Loan Program

The Arizona Housing Finance Authority (AzHFA) operates on behalf of the Arizona Department of Housing to assist creditworthy renters who can afford a mortgage but lack the resources for a down payment.  The AzHFA HOME PLUS Home Loan Program provides an attractive 30-year fixed-rate mortgage with a down payment assistance (DPA) grant that can be used toward the down payment and/or closing costs.

DPA is a non-repayable grant for down payment and closing costs, equal to a percentage of the initial principal balance of the mortgage loan. DPA is only available in conjunction with a HOME Plus loan and is funded by AzHFA at the mortgage loan closing. Qualified U.S. Military Personnel may receive an additiional 1% on ANY mortgage type.
