Down Payment Assistance
For entry level homebuyers, one of the greatest barriers to purchasing a home is the lack of sufficient funds for a down payment. Eagle County established a Down Payment Assistance (DPA) Program in 1998 to offer a solution to this problem. Homebuyers who live and work in Eagle County can use a down payment assistance loan for down payment, closing costs and prepaid expenses related to a home purchase in Eagle County.  For more information on Down Payment Assistance, visit the Overview.
