Uses of Funds
Welcome Home grants are used to fund reasonable down payments and closing costs incurred in conjunction with the acquisition or construction of owner-occupied housing by low- and moderate-income homebuyers. The grants are limited to $5,000 per homebuyer. All funds are reserved for specific homebuyers purchasing specific homes and cannot be transferred to other homebuyers or to other homes.
Homebuyers must contribute at least $500 of their own funds toward down payment and closing costs (60% of these funds may be received as a gift).
Applicants do not have to be first-time homebuyers. However, all first-time homebuyers must complete a homebuyer counseling program. The counseling program must be provided by, or based on one provided by, an organization recognized as experienced in homeownership counseling. The counseling program must cover, at a minimum, mortgage financing, credit-worthiness, household budgeting, and home maintenance. Welcome Home funds may be used to pay up to $300 of the costs provided they are not covered by another funding source.
