Dekalb County Down Payment Assistance

The Dekalb County Down Payment Assistance Program offers either up to $5,000 (to borrowers with credit scores at 620) or $8,000 (to those with scores above 620) in down payment assistance to qualified, first time home buyers in households with incomes at 80% of the metro area median to buy a single family detached home priced up to $160,000 in Dekalb County (outside of Atlanta City Limits). The loan is forgiven over ten years of continued owner occupancy.

The Workforce Enhancement Dekalb Down Payment Grant is also exclusively available to qualified borrowers who are looking to buy in Dekalb County, but it is not a first time home buyer program.
