Report offers several
organizations who assist with not only down payment assistance but also rental
assistance as well including help with utilities if so required. This report typically only includes
organizations who provide only PARTIAL help with down payment assistance and/or
utility help and may be up to several hundred dollars or more. However, in the majority of cases, applicants
must also have a monetary involvement in their down payment in order to receive
funding (which includes rental/utility assistance).
Home Sweet Home also
offers down payment assistance in the form of sweat equity and a down payment
installment program as well. Once you
have your down payment saved, Home Sweet Home can help you get placed into a
home. Again, all down payment assistance
programs REQUIRE that the buyer (or renter in the case of rental assistance)
have a minimum to substantial monetary interest or involvement in the payment
of down payment or move-in cost requirements.
In other words, while the down payment assistance programs can help
substantially, an applicant will be REQUIRED to also contribute funds toward
the down payment (or rental costs/utilities) as well.
