Down Payment Assistance from RI Housing

RI Housing’s new Spring7500 Program is designed to help eligible first-time home buyers with what is often the biggest hurdle to home ownership: the down payment. The program is available statewide.


To qualify for the Spring7500 Program you must:

  • Be a first-time homebuyer purchasing a 1-4 family home or condominium in Rhode Island
  • Have a minimum credit score of 660
  • Meet RIHousing loan and income limits*
  • Complete a homebuyer education course (available in-person or online through RIHousing)
  • Obtain a RIHousing-funded first mortgage through a Participating Lender or the RIHousing Loan Center
  • Occupy the home as your primary residence

Loan Limits

The maximum loan limit allowed is $454,250 for a one- to four-family home or eligible condominium.

Income limits

To be eligible for the Spring7500 Program, your total annual household income must be less than $93,623 (for a 1-2 person household) or $107,667 (for a 3+ person household).

Terms and Conditions

  • Zero percent (0%) interest
  • No monthly payments due
  • No fees or charges (including settlement, application, housing counseling, or recording fees)
  • The loan is structured so the amount borrowed is only due when the first of the following occurs:
    • Borrower no longer occupies home as primary residence;
    • the property is sold, conveyed, transferred, assigned, encumbered, or mortgaged; or
    • if all or any portion of the title to the property becomes vested in anyone other than the Borrower.


  • The Spring7500 Program is only available in conjunction with a RI Housing first mortgage, available through our network of Participating Lenders and the RI Housing Loan Center.
  • The Purchase and Sales agreement and RI Housing Loan Registration may not be dated prior to March 18, 2019.
