Matching Down Payment Assistance For Tiny Homes

The greatest hurdle for making a tiny home dream come true is often saving for the down payment. You might have great credit, the perfect debt to income ratio, and even a legal place to live, but it is hard to come up with the 10 to 20% that is required.  We are so blessed that Operation Tiny Home is offering a solution for those that qualify.

Operation Tiny Home has joined with Sutter Home Family Vineyards and Wells Fargo to assist individuals struggling with hardships due to the COVID-19 pandemic, wildfire, hurricane, or other natural disasters, to provide affordable high-quality custom housing solutions through a down payment assistance match grant. This grant will provide qualified applicants with the financial boost they need to secure a stable home and create the foundation needed to overcome adversity.
