These include Alameda’s Down Payment Assistance Program which (1) provides shared appreciation loans to first time homebuyers (2) the marketing and sale of new Below Market Rate homes for sale and (3) assists owners of Alameda-sponsored Below Market Rate (BMR) homes in selling, refinancing or making improvements to their home. We invite you to learn more about these programs and other resources available in the City of Alameda.
