Housing Trust Presents: Spanish Language Empower Homebuyers SCC Down Payment Assistance Webinar


All are welcome. This webinar will be presented entirely in Spanish.

Many renters in the Bay Area think it would never be possible to come up with a down payment to buy a home. With a down payment assistance loan through Empower Homebuyers SCC – a program funded through Santa Clara County’s Measure A – homeownership is possible.
Empower is a down payment assistance loan to help first-time homebuyers with up to 17% of the purchase price of a single family home, condo, or townhome in Santa Clara County. The maximum loan amount is $187,000 on a home that is $1,100,000. With only a 3% down payment required from the buyer, a 20% down payment on the home is possible. As a 30-year deferred loan, no monthly loan payments are required.
This program is made for those with low to moderate incomes in the Bay Area. For example, with a household of four people, if your combined income is $181,550 or less, you may be eligible. If you want to buy a home just for yourself and make $127,100 or less, you could also qualify.
