Down Payment Assistance Kentucky 2021 Kentucky Housing Corporation

KHC is used for mostly applicants in urban areas of Kentucky that don’t have access to USDA or other government agencies to buy a home with no down payment.

A minimum of 3.5% down payment is required with this loan. Down payment assistance loans are available from $4500-$6,000, and are paid back over a period of ten years. They are typically offered to buyers with limited cash reserves and carry an interest rate of 1 to 5.5%.

These loans can make a critical difference to buyers for whom the down payment is an obstacle. Buyers whose 3.5% down payment is less than the $6000 limit may choose to use the remainder of a down payment loan to pay closing costs, further reducing the amount needed to bring to closing.

Kentucky USDA Mortgage Funds for 2021 Available.


Fiscal Year 2021 SFH Guaranteed Funds Now Available!


As of Sunday, December 27, 2020, funding for Rural Development’s Single-Family Housing Guaranteed Loan Program authorized by the “Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021”, is available.

Files in Process:

All files processed “Subject to Availability of Funds” have been obligated and the updated Conditional Commitments were generated by the Agency to remove the “contingent upon” language.
Lender receipt of the updated Conditional Commitment will signal the request has been successfully obligated by the Agency.

Loan Closing:

Once the loan has closed (including loans that were closed prior to the obligation of funds by the Agency), the lender may submit their request for Loan Note Guarantee along with a closing package.
Lenders using the Agency’s automated Lender Loan Closing (LLC) system will complete the lender certification electronically (i.e. no manual signature/date required).
For manually submitted loan closing packages, ensure the lender certification on the Conditional Commitment is signed and dated after the Agency’s obligation date (the issuance date on the updated Conditional Commitment). Use of the Lender Loan Closing system is highly recommended.
