Downpayment Assistance Program

The Office of Housing provides up to $45,000 per household in downpayment assistance to lower-income buyers through partnerships with local nonprofits and lending institutions. Our partners use Office of Housing funds in their programs to create affordable homeownership opportunities in Seattle. More. . .


Foreclosure Prevention

The first step to avoiding mortgage default or home foreclosure is to contact your mortgage lender or servicer. This is the company that sends you your monthly mortgage bill.

In addition, there are a number of city, state and federal programs and resources that are available. More . . .


Home Repair Loan Program

The Home Repair Loan program provides loans to repair owner-occupied, single family homes with low- to moderate-income households. One of our loans can help you live in a safer, healthier home. More . . .
