Down Payment Assistance Program

The City of Frisco currently offers a Down Payment Assistance Program designed to help low and moderate income families employed by the city of Frisco or the Frisco Independent School District to purchase a home in the city of Frisco.

Down Payment Assistance Program

Families with at least one adult working full-time for the city of Frisco or Frisco ISD for at least 6 months may be assisted in purchasing a home in Frisco. The program provides forgivable loans of up to $10,000 to qualified home buyers for the purpose of down payment and closing cost assistance.

Eligible households must be first time home buyers (with some exceptions). Income and purchase price limits vary by family size. The combined household income of all adults may not exceed $131,989 and the maximum sale price is $404,800 in order to be eligible for the program. Full program details can be found in this brochure (PDF).

The Down Payment Assistance Program can be used with other first time home buyer programs to help make home ownership possible for almost everyone.  For additional information please refer to the program Policy.
