Learn How an HFA Loan Might Be the Best Fit for Your Borrower

Each state and many municipalities have a Housing Finance Agency (HFA) and each serves a similar purpose: to provide affordable housing opportunities for individuals whose needs may not be met by the traditional housing market.


HFA Loans and Benefits

  • Low-cost mortgage financing options
  • Down payment assistance programs are often available
  • Reduced MI coverages
  • Potential tax credit*
  • Homebuyer Education programs
  • Borrowers may cancel MI on conventional HFA loans after building 20% equity
  • A wealth of state-specific resources available online

For more information on state-specific programs, go directly to your state's HFA page to find authorized lenders and resources.

*Borrowers should check with a tax consultant for tax advice.
