Information for Lenders

Lenders and brokers are required to sign an MCC Lender/Broker Participation Agreement with PHB and pay a participation fee for the current funding allocation. Loan officers must attend a training session in order to become a certified loan officer and submit MCC applications.

The City of Portland received its fifth allocation from the State of Oregon for the MCC Program October of 2014, which allows the popular first-time homebuyer program to continue in Portland by helping another 256 households. Loan officers who participated in the previous allocation can continue participation without additional training as long as a new Lender/Broker Participation Agreement is signed for the current allocation.

PHB is not currently offering additional training classes for loan officers to join the program. To add your name to a waiting list for when training is offered again, please contact PHB at
