Bremerton Homeownership Program

The City of Bremerton, in partnership with Community Frameworks, presents the Bremerton Homeownership Down Payment Assistance (DPA) Program. The program is designed to provide deferred payment, low-interest subordinate loans that make home buying affordable for eligible home buyers purchasing within the Bremerton City Limits. Funding for this program comes from the City of Bremerton’s HUD allocation of Federal HOME funds and is matched with DPA from other sources provided by Community Frameworks for up to 20% of the purchase price. Community Frameworks’ partner lenders have additional DPA available as well. 

For more information please visit the Housing Information webpage or contact Community Frameworks at 360-377-7738 ext. 2, or visit their website

Most Block Grant assistance is used for large-scale projects and programs that are carried out in partnership with local agencies and contractors. If you need emergency assistance for you or your household please feel free to contact the Housing Solutions Center 360-377-0053.

Upon advance request, the City will provide for interpretation or translation services to meet the needs of non-English speaking residents. The City will take appropriate actions to serve the needs of persons with disabilities.
