2023-24 University Housing Assistance Program (UHAP)

Through a partnership between the University of Washington (UW) and the Washington State Housing Finance Commission, a select number of newly hired tenure-track assistant professors and early career tenured/tenure-track associate professors may qualify for assistance with their down payment when buying a home.

This pilot program—called the University Housing Assistance Program or UHAP—is intended to support UW recruitment and retention efforts. Program participants are nominated by their dean/chancellor and selected by the provost. Through a second-mortgage loan, eligible borrowers can receive up to 10% of the home’s sale price (or $90,000, whichever is less) which reduces the amount of cash needed for a down payment.

For more information, including eligibility criteria, please contact your current or prospective dean’s/chancellor’s office.
