Financial assistance for home buyers and owners

Down payment assistance programs for first time home buyers

Down payment assistance, grants, and rebates

These programs are designed to help home buyers purchase new or resold homes. They provide down payment assistance and/or renovation grants for suites, etc. Some of these programs can be used together to increase the affordability of a home for first time buyers. Please note that the municipal and county programs have many applicants each year and funding may not be available when you’re ready to purchase.

Contact our office for more information on becoming a home owner.
