Palm Desert Housing Authority ("Authority") together with the City of Palm Desert ("City") are providing financial assistance to eligible First Time Homebuyer households in the form of silent second and third trust deeds in purchasing a home in an attempt to create affordable homeownership opportunities, at an affordable housing cost.
The Authority and City assistance is specifically designed to provide qualified persons and families with down payment monies necessary to secure financing towards the purchase of a home within the Authority's housing developments.
In order to maintain the continued affordability in the development, every buyer will be required to sign an “Affordable Housing Restriction and Lien Agreement”. The agreement will include resale price restrictions, occupancy restrictions, and limitations on encumbrances and transfers, among other limitations and restrictions.
Applications will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. The Authority provides a Pre-Qualification Questionnaire and Checklist along with Program information to interested participants. For more information or to apply for assistance, you may contact the Housing Department, or download an application and submit with the requested documents on the application to our office.
YOU MUST SUBMIT COPIES OF ALL ORIGINAL DOCUMENTS CERTIFYING THE PHOTOCOPIES ARE TRUE AND EXACT COPIES OF THE ORIGINAL IN ORDER TO REVIEW YOUR APPLICATION.
INCOMPLETE APPLICATIONS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.
