Chenoa Fund is a national down payment assistance program provided through CBC Mortgage Agency, a tribally-owned government organization that strives to increase affordable and sustainable homeownership. The Chenoa Fund provides qualifying homebuyers with Second Mortgage Loans that may fund up to 3%-5% of their down payment on a house.
With several different program options available (such as the Chenoa Fund Rate Advantage Program), Chenoa Fund Loans can be a great resource for low-to-moderate-income borrowers seeking assistance nationwide.
Chenoa Fund Programs:
- Are Second Mortgage Loans (down payment assistance) available in conjunction with FHA and Conventional First Mortgage Loans (traditional home financing)
- May provide up to 3%-5% of your down payment in the form of a repayable loan, forgivable loan, or gifted grant (dependent on the program and while funds last)
- Offer flexible guidelines and competitive interest rates
- May have certain home type/condition/price restrictions
- Typically provide homebuyer education and/or counseling for the first 18 months of homeownership
You may qualify for a Chenoa Fund Program if you:
- Are a low-to-moderate income individual
- Have a minimum credit score of 600 (dependent on the loan program)
- Have a debt-to-income ratio below 50%
- Have a satisfactory employment history
