Downpayment Assistance Programs
Many low‐income families are unable to purchase a new home because of their inability to save enough money for the downpayment and closing costs. To overcome this barrier, CDCB, in partnership with, the City of Brownsville and the State of Texas, have created one of the most successful Downpayment Assistance Programs in the State of Texas. Since 2001, CDCB has utilized over $10.3 million in Federal, State, and private downpayment assistance funds, in association with its new housing construction and loan origination programs. CDCB has assisted 1,194 families at an average of $8,956 per family.
