Mortgage Credit Certificate Program
Have you dreamed of home ownership but thought that it was beyond your reach? The Housing Finance Authority of Broward County may help make your dream a reality through the Mortgage Credit Certificate (MCC) program.
The MCC reduces the amount of federal income tax paid, giving more available income to qualify for a mortgage loan and assist with house payments. The MCC is not a mortgage, but may be used in conjunction with a first mortgage from a qualified lender. Borrowers must be first-time home buyers, and must qualify for a mortgage using standard credit requirements. Borrowers may also use any down-payment assistance and grant programs available through any source acceptable to the lender.

For more information, view Broward County's Mortgage Credit Certificate program brochure.
