$20K Grants To Buy A Home Posted on August 22, 2018 - 07:45 AM by Red Hilton LIFT Funds are available AGAIN! Great News! The Neighborhood LIFT funds (that were available for reservation June 29th and 30th) will be coming available again on August 31st 2018 on a first come first serve basis. LIFT is a $20K forgivable grant to be used for down payment and/or closing costs for primary residence purchases in 5 counties (Essex, Middlesex, Norfolk, Plymouth and Suffolk) with income as high as $107,000.00 annually in most areas for most loan types. For first responders, Military personnel and K-12 teachers there is an additional $2,5000. If you want to buy a home, but haven't been able to save a down payment give the AskForRed.com Real Estate Team a call (781-RED-9595.) Not all lenders are participating in this program, but AskForRed.com works with participating lenders. This grant can be coupled with Mass Housing down payment assistance, FHA or with local BANK CRA Programs ( they typically have a below market interest rate with No Monthly PMI available in parts of Norfolk and Plymouth Counties). Don’t miss out on this one time opportunity that has unexpectedly returned to help more homebuyers. Comments There are no comments for this post.
