First Time Home Buyer Program (FTHB)

*PROGRAM ON HOLD* The Housing Division of the Development Services Department provides low interest loans for First Time Home Buyers (FTHB) through federal grants.  When funds are available, this program helps individuals and families who wish to purchase a home, but are unable to qualify and/or come up with the necessary down payment without financial assistance.  This program is designed to help persons who would not otherwise achieve the American Dream of owning their own home. A program loan is a second mortgage; a 3% simple interest bearing loan with all payments deferred until the first occurrence of sale, refinancing, full payment of the first mortgage, or 30 years.

The current Fiscal Year funds for the First Time Home Buyer Program are available until exhausted.  Once the funds have been expended, the City will accept applications for a waiting list for future funds.  For more information, or if you have any questions, please contact the Housing Division at  (909)931-4300.
