Homebuyer: How to Find an Approved Lender


Tired of Renting?

You could own a home for less than you are paying in rent.


Have you always dreamed of owning a home but never had the savings for a down payment? Perhaps Chenoa Fund can provide the cash you need NOW to buy that home.


While many people do manage to purchase a home by saving for a down payment over a period of years, increasing rents and stagnant wages can make saving quite difficult.


You don’t need a large down payment to qualify for homeownership. For those that qualify, down payment assistance allows renters to become homeowners without tapping into their savings accounts. Many of our homebuyers are building equity in their houses for a monthly payment lower than their previous rent and are now eligible to receive extra financial benefits from the federal mortgage interest tax deduction.


Learn about Chenoa Fund down payment assistance. Chenoa Fund is a nationwide down payment assistance program administered by CBC Mortgage Agency (CBCMA). It is our mission to increase affordable and sustainable homeownership, specifically for creditworthy, low- to moderate-income individuals.


CBCMA down payment assistance options have helped thousands of buyers just like you to move into their dream home, oftentimes for less than it was costing them to rent.


CBCMA has several program options to choose from that include down payment assistance in the form of second mortgages on conventional and FHA-insured loans.
