Covington’s 10-year, 0% loans have gotten 426 families into homes

It invites more applicants its Homebuyer Assistance Loans

COVINGTON, Ky. – In the last 10 years, the City of Covington has helped 426 families buy a home in The Cov by offering help with down payments and closing cost loans.

The best part? The loans are forgiven a little each year the families stay in their house.

The attached chart and map show how the lending have been spread across Covington’s residential neighborhoods. For example, there were 187 in Latonia’s four areas, 42 in South Covington, 68 in Peaselburg, and 21 in Eastside.

(On top of the 426 loans, the City in 2023 gave an additional 33 loans under a separate, one-time ARPA-funded program.)

Under the program’s current format, the money comes in the form of a 10-year, 0% interest loan. You must meet income and credit requirements and there is a maximum price for the house.
