  • Description: Offers loans intended to bring homeownership to households to purchase a home in Alameda County. AC Boost provides loans of up to $210,000 (depending on buyer income and need). Loans are interest free and have no monthly payment during the time that a household owns their home. Instead, the program requires repayment only when:
    1. the 30 year term has ended
    2. the home is sold prior to the 30 year term ending
    3. the owner would like to take cash out of the home in a refinance
    4. the owner no longer wishes to occupy the home

    At that point, the owner repays the amount that they borrowed plus a proportional share of the increase in the value of their home.
