YES IT’S TRUE!

Have you been dreaming about purchasing a property in Colorado but don’t have much saved for a down payment? Don’t stress, W2 employees in the Cannabis industry can actually qualify for down payment assistance through the CHFA program. CHFA stands for Colorado Housing Finance Authority and they offer funds in the form of a grant or second mortgage up to 5% of the new proposed loan amount. The following are some CHFA facts:

  • You don’t need to be a first time homebuyer
  • CHFA uses income limits based on household size and Property County
  • If you are a W2 employee in the Cannabis industry, your income can be used to qualify
  • The minimum investment required for a CHFA loan is only $1000
  • The minimum credit score is 620
  • CHFA requires participants take an online home buying class
  • The maximum loan amount for a CHFA loan is $453,100
