It’s just about impossible to narrow it down to three – but here are a few features of which we’re proud:
The City of Concord provides down payment assistance for the purchase of a first home, with eligibility based on income and household size. The program is designed to assist low and median-income households. Hello Housing, a nonprofit organization, assists the City in administering the program. All application materials are available through Hello Housing at (415) 863-3036.
Also, the Mortgage Credit Certificate Program authorized by Congress in the Tax Reform Act of 1984 provides financial assistance to first-time homebuyers for the purchase of new or existing single-family homes. The Program is administered by Contra Costa County.
