Manufactured Housing Down Payment Loan Program

Do you own an old, drafty mobile home and want to replace it with a new, Energy Star Rated model? Or are you interested in purchasing a new Energy Star Rated manufactured home, but can't quite afford the down payment? This program may be able to help. Our down payment assistance loans are designed to be a "silent second" to a first mortgage. The loans are offered at 0.00% interest, and all payments are deferred until the property is sold, transferred, or refinanced. The loans are assumable, which will allow the next buyer of the home to take advantage of this loan if they meet the program qualifications. 

To Start the Application Process:

  1. Complete Homebuyer Education and Counseling at your NeighborWorks Homeownership Center 
  2. Submit an Interest Form
