Arizona Home Buyer Programs

Learn about the various Arizona home buyer programs below.

Arizona has many first- time home buyer programs that are only available through specific counties throughout the state. Most of these programs are similar being that they offer no money down and/or tax credits to qualified applicants. Below you will find a list and links to some of these agencies.

For example, qualified first time home buyers can receive what are called Individual Development Account, or IDA funds for a down payment assistance (DPA) grant up to $15,000 towards the purchase of a primary residence in the county of Maricopa. IDA is a savings account that offers low-income workers the opportunity to open a matched savings account that can be used for small business development, higher education, or the purchase of a first home.

They can be for down payments or towards customary closing costs. However, this grant is only available to homebuyers who are also using one or more of the following programs such as the Newtown Community Land Trust program (Chandler, Glendale, Scottsdale or Tempe) and other Newtown sponsored down payment assistance (DPA) programs; (i.e., NSP-DPA, HOME-DPA, ADDI).

The Scottsdale Community Land Trust Homeownership Program acquires/rehabilitates single-family homes in Scottsdale.  The homes will be made available for sale to low-income first-time homebuyers.

These programs can get confusing for people who don’t understand how all this works.
