3. Your Kentucky Home Program for 2019

 

 

DOWN PAYMENT ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

The Kentucky Association of Counties, Inc. (KACo) developed a new initiative, Your Kentucky Home.  This unique program offers to qualified home buyers across the Commonwealth, the gift of a down payment of up to 5% of the amount of their first mortgage in purchasing a home.   This down payment assistance is given in the form of a grant with the home buyer having no obligation to repay the mortgage assistance.  It does not entail a second mortgage.  To receive the mortgage assistance, the borrower agrees to a 30 year fixed rate on their mortgage of ¼% to ½% higher than the current market rate.  The mortgage assistance can then be used for reducing the principal amount of the mortgage, to pay closing costs, or a combination of the two.

KACo has been qualified by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as a Housing Finance Authority (HFA) to offer this program in Kentucky.  There are similar programs in more than 20 other locales around the United States.  The closest program to Kentucky is Communities First, operated by the Port Authority of Cincinnati, which offers this service throughout Ohio.

Since November 2016, the Your Kentucky Home program has operated on a limited basis.  During the first seven months, Your Kentucky Home assisted nearly 60 home buyers achieve their goal of home ownership by granting approximately $250,000 in down payment assistance for homes with a total value of approximately $5,500,000.  The unique nature of this program has allowed KACo to operate this program at no cost to its capital base.  This program is available to Kentucky Home buyers in all 120 counties.  They can access Your Kentucky Home through any mortgage lender that has joined and qualified to be a member of KACo’s program.  There are currently multiple lenders across the state in the program, with KACo actively seeking new lenders.

Underwriting of mortgage loans is completely under the control of the mortgage lender. KACo has no involvement in deciding who is eligible to borrow.  The only restrictions on this program are HUD restrictions.  The loan application must meet the local lenders credit standards and must meet any federal requirements if it is an FHA, VA, Rural Development, Freddie Mac or Conventional loan. There is a minimum required 640 FICO score and a maximum income limit for the mortgage applicant that is set at 115% of AMI (Average Median Income) by county.  The program is not restricted to first time home buyers.

This is a unique outreach program for KACo, but it supports the premise that increased home ownership creates stronger counties.  Home owners add to the strength of the fabric of any community, not to mention the increased tax base.  KACo is proud to offer an initiative that promotes home ownership across the Commonwealth.

4. Welcome Home $5000 Grant for Kentucky Homebuyers 2019

The Federal Home Loan Bank of Cincinnati (FHLB Cincinnati) has established a set-aside of Affordable Housing Program (AHP) funds to help create homeownership through a program called the Welcome Home Program. Welcome Home funds are available to Members as grants to assist homebuyers.
