*Seller-funded down payment programs were eliminated in the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008, but state and local government agencies are still permitted to help borrowers finance their homes with second mortgages and grants. These agencies set different requirements that a borrower needs to meet in order to qualify for the grant programs, such as property location, and purchase price and income limits.
