More than 85 percent (85.8%) of programs currently have funds available for eligible homebuyers, down one percent from second quarter.

Down Payment Resource (DPR) communicates with 1,313 program administrators to track and update the country’s wide range of homeownership programs, including down payment and closing cost programs, Mortgage Credit Certificates, affordable first mortgages and more.
