The Utah Veteran Grant program offers grants for down payment and/or closing costs to who are, or who have, valiantly worked to protect our country’s national security.

Eligibility requirements for applicants:

  • Veteran that has separated within the last 5 years OR a Current member of the military (including Active Duty, Reserve and Guard)

  • Eligible for a VA Home Loan Certificate of Eligibility

  • A first-time homebuyer in Utah (owning a home in another state does not disqualify the applicant) 

  • Dual military/Veteran couples are only eligible for one grant



How much can you get?
$2,500


Mortgage requirements:
1 - All types of Mortgages are accepted (e.g. VA, FHA, Conventional-Traditional 30 year).
2 - The property must be a single-family dwelling including townhomes and condominiums
3 - You must have 3% down payment. Your grant can cover much of that down payment. For example. if you were buying a $250,000 home, you would need a total of $7,500 down.  This can be covered by your $2,500 and then grant providing you with $5,000.

Why do you need this if the VA program offers zero down financing?
Some may not qualify for VA financing.  Our grant can be used with most types of mortgage financing, not just VA.
Or you can still use the VA financing program but this will provide you with additional funds to lower your balance and lower your monthly payment.

 

Do you need to repay this grant?
No. once you have been awarded the grant through your home purchase, you never have to repay it.
