HomeBuyer Programs  

 

Are you renting, but dreaming of owning your own home? The Community Development Department has a program to help you purchase a home. A minimum of $25,000 in household income is required. Maximum income is based on family size and HUD income limits.

HOMEBuyer Loan Application 

 

The HOMEBuyer Program is designed to assist people who want to own a home but need financial assistance in addition to Bank Financing. We offer a HOME SAVINGS ACCOUNT (HSA) Program to help you save over a period of 6 months or more. For every $1 you save we will match it with $2. We also offer loans of up to $15,000 at 0% interest.

 

We offer a Good Neighbor Start-Up Grant. You can qualify for up to $1,000 for moving expenses and/or appliances.   

 

We also offer budget and credit counseling free of charge!
