The Alaska Mortgage Program (AMP) is a state-run initiative that aims to help Alaskans achieve homeownership by providing affordable mortgage financing options. It is administered by the Alaska Housing Finance Corporation (AHFC), a public corporation established by the state legislature.


The AMP offers various mortgage loan products, including conventional loans, FHA loans, VA loans, and USDA Rural Development loans. These loans are designed to cater to different income levels, credit histories, and property types. The program also offers down payment assistance options to help eligible borrowers with their upfront costs.


To qualify for the AMP, applicants must meet certain income limits and credit requirements. The specific criteria may vary depending on the loan program chosen. The AHFC also provides homebuyer education and counseling services to equip potential borrowers with the knowledge and resources they need for successful homeownership.


Overall, the Alaska Mortgage Program strives to make homeownership more attainable for Alaskans, especially those with low to moderate incomes or specific demographic backgrounds.
