NeighborWorks Home Partners will help administer a $100 million down payment assistance program for first-generation homebuyers.

Our upcoming First-Generation Down Payment Assistance program will offer thousands of dollars to cover down payments for first-generation homebuyers in Minnesota.

This program is set to launch in Spring 2024. Please keep checking this page for updates.

How do I know if I’m a first-generation homebuyer?

You may be a first-generation homebuyer if you:

  • have never owned a home or owned a home and lost it due to foreclosure,
  • and your parent(s) or legal guardian(s) never owned a home or lost their home due to foreclosure.

If I don’t qualify for this program, can I still get help with my down payment?

NeighborWorks Home Partners has a variety of down payment assistance programs. Please check our Down Payment Help page to see if any of these options work for you. You can also email us at or call us at 651-292-8710.

What should I do while I wait?

There are several ways to prepare for this program. We recommend taking a homebuyer education class or making an appointment with a homeownership advisor to build your knowledge, readiness, and confidence. Additional information can also be found on the First-Gen DPA website.
