Jacksonville Down Payment Assistance Updates Part 2

Real Estate Agent with Watson Realty Corp SL3137324

As promised, I am going to discuss the Jacksonville H2H program or Headstart to Homeownership program. If you recall in my last post, I gave the information on the Florida Assist ( Florida Bond Money ) program which provides $10,000 in down payment and closing cost assistance. For more information on this program please visit my website. Now let's get back to the H2H program ( Headstart to Homeownership ).


7211 Colonial Creek



This program is specifically for residents of Duval county, Jacksonville, FL and it provides up to $15,000 in down payment and closing cost assistance to credit eligible first time home buyers. The maximum gross income is a little less than the Florida Assist Program as you may only earn up to 80% of the Median income for Florida. For example; A family of four may not earn more than $50,550 to receive assistance.

The maximum purchase price for the H2H program is $271,050.00, that can certainly buy a lot of house here in Jacksonville, FL. 


The Jacksonville H2H program is a very popular program and can run out of funds very quickly as it is first come, first served. You must a contract on a property in order to reserve funding however you may NOT place an offer on a property without approval from the Headstart to Homeownership program.

 If you are a first time homebuyer and would like more information on the H2h ( Head start to homeownership ) program please contact me.
