Kansas Housing’s First Time Homebuyer Program

Kansas Housing’s First Time Homebuyer Program provides income-eligible borrowers with financial assistance for the down payment or closing costs on a new home purchase. A first-time homebuyer is defined as not having a primary interest in owning a home in the last three years.

Income must also not exceed 80% of the area median income (AMI). Between 2% to 10% of the sales price of the home must come from the applicant’s own funds. The loan is forgiven if the buyer remains in the home for a period of 10 years.
