Missouri no longer has a program to 'borrow' against your tax credit for the downpayment. However, there are several other options available, depending upon where you choose to live. USDA offers 100% financing for homes in the rural area. You can still be within 30-40 minutes drive from downtown KC and live in one of these areas. There are also programs within the city but are dependent on funds being available.

Speak to a local mortgage broker and real estate agent because there are non-profits and local governmental agencies that do allow monitizing the tax credit through an up front loan and an FHA mortgage.

Speak to your tax consultant regarding qualifying IRS Codes and see IRS website link--unfortunately, it's a credit that will be issued after the transaction has closed.
