Are you a healthcare professional looking to purchase your first home? There can be many challenges as a first-time home buyer but in Florida, there is now the opportunity to overcome those challenges through a generous program to get you approved today. On June 1, 2022, The Florida Hometown Heroes Housing Program was launched to make homeownership affordable for eligible frontline community workers such as law enforcement officers, firefighters, educators, healthcare professionals, childcare employees, and active military or veterans. This program provides down payment and closing cost assistance to first-time, income-qualified homebuyers so you can purchase a primary residence in the community in which they work and serve. The Florida Hometown Heroes Loan Program also offers a lower first mortgage rate and additional special benefits to those who have served and continue to serve their country.
