A buyer must first be able to obtain a first mortgage through a bank and must contribute 3% of the total costs towards the down payment, among other requirements. There will be no interest, and as long as the borrower owns, occupies, and maintains the home for a period of 15 years, the loan will be forgiven.
Home Repair Assistance
Eligible homeowners may apply for assistance with repairs to their home. The maximum amount of assistance is $40,000 and will be determined by the actual cost of the work.
Repairs are limited to:
- Roof repair and/or replacement; complete repair/replacement of deteriorated roofing system
- Window replacement
- Door replacement
- Hurricane/storm shutters
Home repair funds will be secured with a junior note and mortgage on the property. There is no interest on the loan and as long as the borrower continues to own, occupy, and maintain the home for a period of 10 years, the loan will be forgiven.
