The City, as the lead agency of the Greensboro HOME Consortium, shall be the administrative agent for the County Homebuyer DPA.

Eligible homebuyers (excluding the Cities of Greensboro and High Point) may receive up to $10,000 for down payment and closing cost assistance. Program assistance will not exceed 20% of the purchase price or $10,000 - whichever is less. The loan to value (LTV) cannot exceed 100%. The combined loan-to-value (CLTV) from all sources for homebuyer financing should not exceed 105% of the appraised value. In the case that the CLTV is >100%, the LTV shall not exceed insurer (conventional, FHA, USDA, VA) limits and must be approved by the County’s contracted homebuyer assistance provider on a case-by-case basis.

Funding for this Program shall be provided from the Guilford County allocation of HOME Consortium funds awarded by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, in an amount not to exceed $398,691.
