Did you know that now Military first time buyers can apply for a $5000 grant toward a down payment and closing costs? The national nonprofit Pentagon Federal Credit Union Foundation is offering the assistance through it’s Dream Makers program, but you are able to apply the grant to a mortgage from ANY financial institution. There are some restrictions….this is for active duty personnel, veterans, retired members of the military or employees of the U.S. Dept of Homeland Security. You must be a first time homebuyer, or have not owned a home in the past three years, and there are income restrictions. Please read about this program further at www.PentagonFoundation.org. Click on the ‘Dream Makers’ link.
Definitely worth checking into for all of my military clients!
