Project Reinvest Homeownership Program


About Project Reinvest Image

FINANTA partners with the Project Reinvest Homeownership Program.  This Program is for down payment assistance and designed to advance economic development in our local communities.  The Program serves low- to moderate-income first-time homebuyers in the City of Philadelphia, and provides eligible homebuyers with a 0% interest, deferred mortgage loan.  This mortgage loan is due when the homeowner sells, re-mortgages, or transfers the title.  Mortgage loans may be used for down payment, closing costs, or out-of-pocket expenses.  Through this Program, FINANTA has provided hundreds of $10,500 down payment assistance mortgage loans to eligible homebuyers.
