Down Payment Assistance has been available throughout the nation for FHA, Conventional, USDA, and VA buyers for a long time. I still run into Realtors and clients that think Down Payment Assistance (DPA) programs on mortgages are only for first-time homebuyers. This is not true. Down Payment Assistance is available for non-first time homebuyers too. CHFA provides down payment assistance grants and silent seconds for FHA, Conventional, and VA buyers whether or not they are first time homebuyers.
