Employer Assisted Housing Program (EAHP)

The Employer Assisted Housing Program (EAHP) provides assistance to employees of the District of Columbia Government who are purchasing a home in the District for the first time.  The EAHP funded property must be owner occupied and the employee’s primary residence.  Employees of District government agencies may be eligible for matching down payment funds up to $1,500 and a deferred loan of up to $10,000 to be used towards the purchase of a single family home, condominium or cooperative unit located in the District of Columbia. The maximum allowable purchase price is $625,500.

EAHP tax incentives are no longer available.

The EAHP tax credits have been eliminated by the Budget Support Act, 2014. View additional information.
