What is the Shasta County Down Payment Assistance Program?

How much can you borrow?
The loan amount can be up to 40% of the purchase price, not to exceed $80,000.00. The maximum purchase price of the home is $225,000.00. The borrower must contribute at least 3% of the purchase price to the sale transaction. This may be a gift.
Who is eligible?

A first-time home buyer is someone who has not owned a home in the last 3 years, or who qualifies as a “displaced home-maker”
