The Fairfield Homeownership Assistance Program is meant for borrowers in Fairfield, CT. It’s a federally funded Homeownership Assistance Program for income eligible first-time homebuyers. Interested borrowers must take and finish a HUD-certified first-time homebuyer counseling program. Two types of assistance are offered: Down Payment Assistance and Closing Cost Assistance. In Down Payment Assistance, 50% of the down payment is covered (up to $30,000) in the form of a deferred zero-interest loan.

In Closing Cost Assistance, up to $2,500 of closing costs are covered. This is a grant and does not need to be repaid. Eligible properties must be owner-occupied and located in Fairfield. The properties can be single-family, two-family or a condominium unit. Investment properties are not included.
