First Step To Receive Down Payment Assistance

The first step to receiving down payment assistance from the city is to attend Pre-Purchase Homeownership counseling.  Approved counseling agencies in the Lansing area are:

Greater Lansing Housing Coalition
600 W. Maple Street
Lansing, MI  48906
(517) 372-5980

Franklin Street Community Housing Corporation
2110 S. Cedar Street
Lansing, Michigan  48910
(517) 482-8708

Center for Financial Health
3815 W. St. Joseph Street, Suite B-200
Lansing, MI  48917
(517) 708-2550

You will need to call one of these agencies to sign up for their Pre-Purchase Homeownership counseling course.  You are not eligible for city funds until you have taken this course.

After counseling you will need to find a mortgage company, real estate agent, and a house.

Greater Lansing Association of Realtors website is located at www.lansing-realestate.com

Your mortgage company will submit your application package for down payment assistance to Center For Financial Health.

If your package is accepted, an inspection of the home you wish to purchase will be set-up.  You can obtain additional information and forms for our program on the city's website.
