The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development offers a number of programs for first time home buyers. Many of these programs are administered through state agencies.

Most states operate Housing Finance Agencies that supported the needs of renters and first-time homebuyers by providing financing and programs that create safe, decent and affordable housing opportunities for low and moderate income residents. Most of these agencies low interest rate loans through the sale of tax-exempt bonds. The majority of states have set up these corporations as completely self-supporting state agencies financed with bonds that are repaid by revenues generated through mortgage loans, not taxpayer dollars.

An excellent source of information on home buyer grants available from Colorado is the government grants Website.

A lot of the states offer conventional first mortgage loan programs designed to enhance affordability and homeownership opportunities by offering a fixed interest rate that will not change during the entire loan term. These programs are intended for first-time homebuyers who meet specific income requirements and who are purchasing a new or existing home in the usa offering the programs.

These programs usually offer up to 95% financing. This first mortgage loan may also be combined with other first time buyer programs offering down payment and closing cost assistance to make owning a first home more affordable.

As well as conventional loan programs. States often offer a number of downpayment assistance loan programs.

Many of the states partner with localities – cities, counties, housing authorities, nonprofit entities, and redevelopment agencies to offer programs is intended for low income first-time homebuyers who meet specified income limits and who are purchasing a new or existing home.

Other programs targeted aimed at people of moderate incomes provide down payment assistance for first-time homebuyers. An example of a program of this type provides a deferred-payment junior loan – up to 3% of the purchase price, or appraised value, whichever is less – to qualified borrowers to be played with for their down payment or closing costs.

A great source of current information on Government and Foundation funding news is the community building grant news Website. Give it a visit.
