First Step To Receive Down Payment Assistance

The first step to receiving down payment assistance from the city is to attend the Home Buyer Education course. Approved counseling agency in the Lansing area:

Capital Area Housing Partnership
600 W. Maple St., Ste. D
Lansing, MI 48906

You will need to call the agency to sign up for their Home Buyer Education course. You are not eligible for city funds until you have taken this course. After counseling you will need to find a mortgage company, real estate agent, and a house. For more information, visit the Greater Lansing Association of Realtors Website.

Your mortgage company will submit your application package for down payment assistance to Capital Area Housing Partnership.

If your package is accepted, an inspection of the home you wish to purchase will be set-up. You can obtain additional information and forms for our program on the city's website.
