City of Pine Bluff Homebuyers Assistance Program

The Homebuyers Assistance Program, offered by the Economic and Community Development Department of Pine Bluff, allows qualified individuals to receive as much as $2,000 for down payment costs and $3,000 for closing costs (which does not include prepaid items). This is a deferred loan with a five-year term and 0% interest. The borrower does not need to pay back the loan unless the house is sold, transferred, refinanced, or otherwise disposed of before the five-year term is over.

Qualified applicants must meet specific annual household income limits – they must be of low-to-moderate income and their annual household income cannot be more than 80% of the area median income. For 2020, those limits are as follows:

1 person: $27,000
2 persons: $30,850
3 persons: $34,700
4 persons: $38,550
5 persons: $41,650
6 persons: $44,700
7 persons: $47,850
8 persons: $50,900

Applicants must also pay at least $500 towards the down payment from their own funds.
