Community & Economic Development


American families for years have seen the value of buying their own home. They buy because they want to have a place to call home, purchase an asset that will increase in value over the years and also look forward to providing a generational asset to their family. Our homeownership programs provide the opportunities and resources necessary to bridge the financial gap between your dream and reality. Take a look at our resources below for potential homebuyers, realtors and lenders

Are you ready to achieve your dream of homeownership?

Whether you need down payment assistance or a little more help getting financially prepared we can help! Take a look at this video we put together where you will hear from our former Community and Economic Development director, loan officer, a few of our partners and several Down Payment Assistance and IDA program participants to get an overarching look at the experience. We want to be here for YOU and remind you that homeownership is in your grasp – you just need the right network and tools to get there.

The program is a potentially powerful opportunity for low-income residents to climb the socioeconomic ladder through two vectors: first, the purchase of a house may allow for wealth to build; second, the program allows residents to move to their most favored location within the county, thus giving them better choices around neighborhoods, schools, access to jobs, retail shops and health care.
