Community Development provides assistance to income-eligible buyers toward the purchase of a home in Pasco County if you have not owned a home in the last 3 years. Applicant households who make less than 120% of Area Median Income (AMI) for the Tampa Bay Area may apply for assistance. Funding for both programs is based on current availability for each income level.
Pasco County Community Development will be suspending the Down Payment Assistance (DPA) program effective July 2nd, 2020. Applications for DPA will not be accepted effective this date. All reservations submitted before July 2nd will be honored, however, if a reservation is cancelled or denied, the lender will not be allowed to submit a new reservation.
Community Development will be streamlining and improving our DPA program while suspended and we are hoping the changes will make the process easier, quicker, and more efficient for everyone involved.
