Down payment assistance loans

Project Reinvest: Homeownership
FINANTA and NKCDC have partnered to administer "Project Reinvest: Homeownership" in Philadelphia. The program provides a $10,500 down payment assistance loan to eligible homebuyers who are purchasing a home within Philadelphia. Learn more here.

The NeighborhoodLIFT program is nearly complete. However, if a forfeited NeighborhoodLIFT down payment assistance loan becomes available then an eligible homebuyer could still receive up to $7,500 in matching funds. Assistance is not limited to first-time buyers. Learn more here.

Homebuyer Workshops

Paid workshops
Either of these 8-hour workshops—eHome America or Framework—may be used to qualify for Project Reinvest downpayment assistance loans.

Free workshops
NKCDC conducts free workshops sponsored by the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency (PHFA). These workshops are not accepted for the Project Reinvest program.

Topics range from selecting a realtor to getting inspections. Housing experts present, including PHFA lenders, realtors, insurance agents, and home inspection agents.

Workshops are offered two times a month in different locations.
