The program can provide funds in the amount of $1,000 to $6,000 for closing cost assistance, which can be payable for up to 10 years. In order to quality for this program, the borrower first needs to attend a Home Buyers Counseling Program where a certificate will be issued on their behalf.

b) Mortgage Credit Certificate (MCC) Program - A Mortgage Credit Certificate is a direct dollar for dollar federal income tax credit that is provided to the homebuyer. The amount of the credit to the borrower is established by the Mortgage Credit Certificate Tax Rate that is set by the ADFA.

The MCC also works by substantially reducing the federal income tax liability of eligible homebuyers who are purchasing a qualified residence, thereby making more funds available for the house payment or other household expenses.

c) Arkansas Dream Downpayment Initiative - This program is funded by the HOME Investment Partnerships Program, it provides financial support to assist with the upfront costs of buying a home and and at altogether enable hundreds of families to purchase their first home.
