Lenders / Realtors
Pasco County’s housing programs could not function without the assistance of its partners, particularly lenders, realtors, and homebuilders. Realtors help homebuyers find the house that they want that meet the needs of their families, lenders find the best loan product for inexperienced homebuyers, and homebuilders build the dream homes that families have always wanted.
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.
