New Hampshire Housing mortgages offer special features not generally available through other lending sources – such as downpayment assistance – that can make homeownership more affordable. New Hampshire Housing also offers the Homebuyer Tax Credit program for first-time homebuyers, which enables them to receive a federal tax credit of up to $2,000 per year as long as they own their home and continue to pay mortgage interest. The new Community Heroes Initiative acknowledges the commitment of the state’s essential workers who are first-time homebuyers by offering them a $3,000 closing-cost credit.
