Homeownership Assistance

Home prices in the last several years have dramatically appreciated across the state. Davis County recognizes this unprecedented challenge to homeownership and has created a homeownership assistance program to assist low/moderate income families purchase a home that they may otherwise never be able to afford. In fall 2023, income qualified individuals and families looking to purchase a home in Davis County may apply for a homeownership assistance loan up to $50,000. This homeownership assistance loan can be used for any combination of principal reduction, permanent interest rate buy down (up to $10,000), and/or up to 50% of the required down payment and closing costs. These homeownership assistance loans have no payments and are repaid to the County (plus 1% interest) when the home is sold or refinanced for an ineligible reason.
