I want to purchase a home. Where can I find out about down payment assistance programs?

Many counties in New Jersey have down payment assistance programs and some municipalities also have programs for deed restricted affordable homes.   If CGP&H is the administrative agent, we provide information about County and municipality programs on the development and municipality web pages on www.affordablehomesnewjersey.com.
