The “Own in Salt Lake County” first time home buyer program is a federally funded deferred loan/grant program that can provide up to $20,000 which can be applied to the 50% of required down payment. The goal of this government assistance program is to offer income-eligible households grant funds to help purchase a single-family home. Deferred loan funds shall be repaid in full by the recipient if the homeowner sells; exchanges or transfers title; decides to refinance for any other reason than to reduce their interest rate; or ceases to use the property as the primary residence. There are a limited amount of government grant funds available and they are distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis and take an average of 25 to 30 days to fund after a Letter of Commitment has been issued.
