Yes, there are several grants and assistance programs available for first-time homebuyers in Alaska. Here are a few options:

  1. Alaska Housing Finance Corporation (AHFC) offers various programs such as the First-Time Homebuyer Program and the Home Opportunity Program. These programs provide down payment assistance, reduced interest rates, and closing cost assistance.
  2. The Veterans Affairs (VA) Loan Program provides a zero-down payment loan option for eligible veterans, active-duty service members, and surviving spouses.
  3. The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) offers low down payment loans that are popular a**** first-time buyers. These loans are insured by the government, making it easier to qualify for a mortgage.
  4. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development Program provides low-interest loans and grants for homebuyers in rural areas. Certain areas of Alaska may be eligible for this program.
  5. Local and regional non-profit organizations may also offer grants or assistance programs for first-time homebuyers. It is worth checking with organizations in your specific area for any available opportunities.


Please note that eligibility requirements, loan limits, and program details may vary for each program. It is advisable to research and contact the respective programs directly to obtain accurate and up-to-date information.
