About the programs
The Neighborhood Stabilization Program provides a deferred payment loan to approved households for down payment, gap financing and closing costs toward the purchase of a county-owned Neighborhood Stabilization Program home.
The Homebuyer Assistance Program is designed to help first-time homebuyers purchase a home by providing purchase assistance and closing costs.
Both programs provide assistance to qualified first-time homebuyers in the form of a zero percent interest loan for up to 15 years.
Advance registration is requested and may be made by contacting the Community Assistance Division at 386-736-5955 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
