Lenders and Realtors

Down Payment Assistance (DPA) Program 

All interested homebuyers will need to contact Suncoast Housing Connections (Tampa Bay Community Development Corporation) to attend a Home Buyer Education Class. Homebuyers must work with a Community Development approved lender. 

Realtors will need to sign a letter of understanding to participate in the DPA program. Realtors working with a potential homebuyer can reach out to Brian Jordan by email for the letter of understanding.

All interested Lenders will need to email Brian Jordan to sign up for training.
