First Time Homebuyer Program

All six participating jurisdictions (PJs) within the HOME Consortium offer a First Time Homebuyer Program. For qualified borrowers, up to $10,000 is loaned to assist with the down payment and closing costs associated with the purchase of a home. A lien is placed on the house for the amount of the loan. However, the loan is deferred, interest free and forgivable. The borrower must agree to live in the house for at least five years. At the end of this period, the HOME assistance, which was formerly a loan, becomes a grant.

The First Time Homebuyer Program Requirements are the same for all participating jurisdictions. For more information, please visit the Northern Panhandle HOME Consortium Web site, or contact the HOME Administrator for the location in which you would like to purchase a house:
