Who Do Downpayment Assistance Programs Help and How Should They Be Designed?

/ Webinar

Hosted By:
Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University

The Biden administration is proposing a $15,000 downpayment tax credit to help potential homebuyers who can afford monthly mortgage payments but do not have savings for a downpayment. In this seminar, researchers will discuss two projects focused on who might be aided by downpayment assistance and the choices policymakers will need to make as they move forward with the plan.
