The "ADFA Move-Up Choice" single family loan program offers the homebuyer a grant of 4% of their loan amount funded by a higher interest rate on the first mortgage.  It can be used to pay closing costs and prepaids, down payment or even pay off a debt at closing to help qualify for a loan.  

This mortgage program is available to both first-time and repeat homebuyers in Arkansas. First-time homebuyers using the “ADFA Move-Up Choice” Loan Program may also qualify to receive a FREE ADFA MCC - Mortgage Credit Certificate.

  • ADFA MCC - Mortgage Credit Certificate Program – a financial incentive for first-time homebuyers to purchase homes they otherwise might not be able to afford.  With the MCC Program, 50% of the mortgage interest is a dollar for dollar tax credit for as long as the home is used as the borrower's principal residence.  Borrowers may get up to $2,000 annually.
