2022 Housing Assistance Purchase Program

The Housing Assistance Puchase Program offers grants to income- and asset-qualified First-Time homebuyers for the purpose of financing the gap between the affordable price and the selling price of an existing market-rate house in Dartmouth, MA. Two grants up to $175,000 to purchase a 2-Bedroom home or 3-Bedroom home or larger are being offered. The program will reimburse each buyer up to $1,500 toward initial home inspections and any additional inspections required under this program. Income limits and other eligibility requirements apply.

Applicants must secure approval for a mortgage loan, submit evidence of such approval and availability of funds for a down payment together with the application. Only one application per household will be accepted, and there is no need to submit multiple applications. For full details on the program and to access the application view the 2022 Housing Assistance Purchase Program (PDF).
