Down Payment Programs For First Time Homebuyers Are Still Available
Buyers, would you like to have the opportunity to get an additional $6,500-$7,500 in stimulus money for down payment assistance? These 3 programs are on a first come first serve basis, this money will run out. The Gwinnett Homestretch and FHLB programs can be combined if you qualify for each.
Gwinnett Homestretch Programs
The Gwinnett Homestretch I Down Payment Assistance Program provides up to $7,500 dollars for down payment assistance and or closing costs to the first time homebuyer.
The Gwinnett Homestretch II Down Payment Assistance Program provides up to $6,500 dollars for down payment assistance. This program allows for a buyer to have a higher income limit than the Homestretch I Program. These programs are only available on Gwinnett County purchased properties so find out if you qualify for either program here.
FHLB Grant Program
The FHLB Grant program for first time homebuyers is through Federal Home Loan Bank. Each year they set aside 10 percent of their annual net income to provide grants for affordable housing and to help first time homebuyers with down payments and closing costs. This is basically a soft second mortgage that will be forgiven after 5 years.
