Community Hereos Can Get $8000 in Free Money to Help Buy a Home

Hello Hampton Roads,

Attention first time home buyers, if you are a Community Hero, meaning that you fall into one of the categories below, you could be eligible for $8,000.00 in free money to help buy a home! The funds are coming in the form of a grant from  VHDA (the Virginia Housing Development Authority).

Community Heroes 
-Public School Educators
-Law Enforcement Officers
-Fire Fighters
-Medical Tehnicians
-National Guard and other first       responders

The grant can be used towards the down payment, closing costs, pre-paids, points, or any upfront mortgage insurance premiums. The grant is a true gift that does not require re-payment! Benefits of the grant are that it is very broad in nature; it can be used to purchase homes anywhere in the state of Virginia and it can be used to purchase a wide variety of properties including single family homes, town houses, condos, new construction, and foreclosure properties. Furthermore, the income limits are generous: eligible buyers must have a household income from 80% to 120% of the area's median income based on family size. In Hampton Roads income limits top out at $97,000.00 per household!

In order to qualify buyers must meet these criteria:

  • Be a first time home buyer
  • Buyers still have to qualify for a mortgage (either VHDA's FHA or FNMA loans)
  • Contribute 1% into the transaction (fees paid for home inspection and appraisal can count towards this 1%)
  • Complete a home buyer education course from VHDA

These funds are limited and are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, so if you are considering buying a home and would like to use this grant, let's talk about your home buying plans!
