Homeownership Makes Sense! Buying and maintaining a home is a first step in becoming financially established. Your own home is something to take pride in as you and your family make lasting memories.
The Georgia Department of Community Affairs (DCA) has several programs to help low to moderate income persons become homeowners.
The Georgia Dream Homeownership Program offers first mortgages and down payment assistance for qualified homebuyers.
The Georgia Dream First Mortgage is a 30-year fixed rate first mortgage loan. You must be an eligible first time homebuyer or have not owned a home in the past three years, or buy in a targeted area. The total household income can be no more than $59,500 (1 or 2 persons) or $68,500 (3 or more persons). You may qualify to purchase a home with a sales price of up to $200,000.
You may also qualify for a Georgia Dream Down Payment Assistance Loan that provides at least $5,000 in Down Payment Assistance. This must be used along with a GA Dream or USDA Rural Development first mortgage. Income and sales price limits apply.
- No Monthly Payments
- No Interest
No payment due until home is sold, refinanced or no longer used as the borrower’s principal residence.
See the GA Dream Brochure for information about all of the different Down Payment Assistance Loans.
