Boulder County Down Payment Assistance Program

Notice: Funds are no longer available for Broomfield

What is the Down Payment Assistance Program? The Boulder County Down Payment Assistance Program provides down payment and closing cost assistance to first-time homebuyers purchasing a home in Boulder County (outside of the city limits of Boulder). Up to 8.5% of the purchase price (maximum $15,000) may be borrowed.

Loan Terms: For households earning between 51-80% Area Median Income (AMI): 3% interest loan amortized over 10 years. For households earning below 50% Area Median Income (AMI): Deferred loan. No monthly payments, and 4% simple interest is charged for the first 10 years. Payment (principal plus interest) is due at sale, change of ownership, or refinance of property.

See below chart for income limits.

Application Process:

The application process for the Boulder County Down Payment Assistance Program is a two-part process. The first part determines the eligibility of the homebuyer. The second part determines whether the home is eligible to be purchased with the use of funds from the Program.

Homebuyers are strongly encouraged to not sign a purchase contract until they have completed the full application process and are determined eligible for the Program.

Even if you are determined eligible and find a home that you like, that home may not be eligible to be purchased using the Boulder County/Longmont Down Payment Assistance Program.

Please read the below requirements to learn both your requirements and property requirements for the Program. Contact Molly McElroy with any questions at 303-774-4648 or
