Year-to-Date Quarterly Closing

The Dare to Own the Dream Homeownership Program (DARE) and the East Tampa CRA Down Payment Assistance Program are two City of Tampa initiatives that eligible home buyers can utilize to purchase a property within the City limits of Tampa and/or within the East Tampa CRA footprint. Depending on eligible homebuyers’ annual income, they can receive a maximum amount of $30,000.00 from the DARE Program, and a maximum amount of $15,000.00 from the East Tampa CRA program. As a result, some applicants received the maximum amount of $45,000.00 toward the purchase of their home.
