Cuyahoga County Down Payment Assistance Program

The Cuyahoga County Down Payment Assistance Program is an effort to support homeownership for Cuyahoga County residents whose income is in the low to moderate range.  Eligible homebuyers can receive down payment assistance in the amount of 10% of the qualifying home purchase price, up to $16,600.

We believe homeownership should be within reach for every family.
