Maui County is accepting applications for its First-Time Home Buyer’s Down Payment Assistance Program, the Department of Housing and Human Concerns announced.
The program was established to assist low- to above-moderate income households. The program provides first-time homebuyers with down payment and/or closing cost assistance of up to 5 percent of the home purchase price, not to exceed $30,000. Applicants will be selected through a lottery drawing process.
“This program can help Maui County’s working families attain their dream of homeownership,” Mayor Michael Victorino said. “Those who qualify for the program should apply right away.”
