  • Maximum grant will be 3 – 3.5% of the purchase price, based on the down payment required for the eligible VHDA loan.
  • Buyers must have household incomes at or below program limits.
  • Down Payment Assistance Grant may be used with eligible VHDA loans only.
  • Grant funds may not be used in combination with other down payment assistance resources (including FHA Plus).
