The Utah Housing Corporation offers several options for down payment assistance programs for first time buyers and buyers who have previously owned a home. Utah legislation created the Utah Housing Corporation (UHC) in 1975 to serve the public to provide an adequate supply of money with mortgage loans at a reasonable interest rate. This Utah mortgage homebuyer program is very helpful with low to moderate income families.
