Homeownership creates a
path towards generational wealth building.

Unfortunately, 37% of non-homeowners report that the lack of a down payment is holding them back from buying a home.

We help bridge the gap by providing affordable downpayment assistance though our signature program Pima Tucson Homebuyer's Solution (PTHS). Click below to learn if you qualify.


The Essential Workers Housing Fund
helped 120 front-line workers achieve homeownership.  

Leveraging American Rescue Plan Dollars, in collaboration with the City of Tucson, Tucson Association of Realtors Charitable Foundation and other partners, we were able to provide grants up to a $5,000 to assist with closing costs for essential workers

Family Portrait
I may not have been able to afford much in this area without Tucson IDA’s programs. It’s helpful to have that little help … it’s a bridge to go from renting forever to buying a house. The whole idea of home ownership gives you a sense of roots. Owning a home creates expectations for the future, and is important to the identity of a family. It provides a place where everyone can congregate.

Tucson IDA’s mortgage tax credits and down payment assistance programs created equity and security for me and my family.
