“Break the Barrier to Homeownership”

Closing Cost and Downpayment Assistance Contest


Over the past 15 years, AHCMC has distributed approximately $275,000 in grants to first-time homebuyers in Montgomery County to use towards their downpayment or closing cost. If you are a first-time homebuyer in a low- or moderate-income household, you may be eligible to apply!

*Applications for the 2019 AHCMC closing cost assistance program are now being accepted. 




A big thank you to AHCMC’s Closing Cost Assistance sponsors: PNC Bank, Maryland DHCD, SunTrust Bank, and GCAAR. They made it possible for AHCMC to give out $12,500 in closing cost assistance to two first-time home buyers in Montgomery County, MD at the May 2017 Housing Summit.
