Setaside Loan Programs

The Setaside Program was created to purchase first mortgages benefiting home buyers who receive down payment assistance from sources approved by our governing Board. Partner organizations generally require borrowers to be at or below 80% of area median income to receive down payment or gap financing. The Setaside Program also allows first mortgage programs offered to target populations to remove barriers to homeownership.

Lenders reserve Setaside Loans in Lender OnLine under Series 071 and choose one of the programs below.  In addition to uploading the Borrower Stat Sheet and Home Buyer Ed certificate, lenders must also upload the appropriate sponsor letter or award notice to receive a commitment at the lower Setaside Rate.
