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 downpayment@nwhomepartners.org 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.
