Types of closing costs and down payment assistance vary by program but common forms include:
Grant: This is an outright gift of money.
Zero-interest/forgivable loans: The loan for this type is forgiven over a certain period. The money will not need to be paid back if you still own and live in the home after the period is over.
Zero-interest/deferred-payment loan: Terms and conditions vary depending on the program but usually payments on the down payment loan aren't due until the home is sold, you refinance the home, or the mortgage reaches the end of the term.
