Manitoba Home Buyer Down Payment Assistance Program

HOMEWorks! is the first pillar of Manitoba’s new, affordable
income housing strategy,HOUSINGFirst.

It is a $104.5 million, three-year fund to increase the supply of affordable housing
in Manitoba through:

• support for the new rental housing, housing
co-operatives and home ownership
• down payment assistance to home buyers
• rent supplements
• renovation options for northern
remote communities

What is the Home buyer Down Payment Assistance Program?

This program helps first-time home buyers access new or recently renovated
affordable housing by providing financial assistance for a down payment.
Down-payment assistance may be provided to new home buyers for homes
funded under the Home Ownership Program in:

• designated target areas to a maximum of five per cent of the sale price, plus a
closing cost allowance

• designated northern non-market areas to a maximum of 10 per cent of the sale
price, plus a closing cost allowance

Where is the program available?

The program is available in designated target
areas and in northern non-market communities.

Who does the program benefit?

The program is designed for:

• low- to moderate-income Manitobans in designated target areas with incomes
at or below the HOMEWorks! maximum household income limit

Who is eligible for funding?
