The San Miguel Regional Down Payment and Closing Cost Assistance Program (DPCC) offers financial assistance through low-interest loans to residents of San Miguel County, toward the down payment or closing costs for the purchase or construction of a home. The program is designed to help buyers, who have no other mechanism available, to qualify for a loan and have no other resources for DPCC assistance. This program is not exclusively for first-time home buyers; however, previous homeowners may be required to demonstrate need. The loan is for 15 years with no monthly payment. The loan will become immediately due upon the sale, transfer, refinance, such time when the home is no longer the primary residence, or death of the buyer.
