Florida’s Hometown Heroes Program

Are you a healthcare provider, teacher, firefighter, police officer, or any other type of frontline worker? In this video, I’m going to tell you all about the Florida Hometown Heroes Housing Program. We’ll look at who qualifies and what benefits are included so you can see if this amazing program is for you.

Florida’s Hometown Heroes

The Florida Hometown Heroes Housing Program was recently passed and signed into law. It provides frontline workers with affordable housing opportunities.

This means that people who are an integral part of growing and building our communities—such as our health care providers, firefighters, police officers, and teachers—may be eligible for up to $25,000 in assistance for closing costs and downpayment. They may also benefit from lower interest rates, reduced upfront fees, and zero loan origination or discount points.

Who Qualifies

A variety of occupations qualify under this program. Categories include everything from law enforcement and firefighters to teachers, childcare instructors, and healthcare professionals. Even massage therapists, athletic trainers, and veterinarians can apply. The program also includes active military personnel and veterans.

This program has loan limits and income limits for each county. Additionally, applicants need to be first-time homebuyers looking to purchase a primary residence in the community they serve.

I’m Here To Help

As you can see, the Florida Hometown Heroes Housing Program is a great option for those who serve our communities and want to purchase a home. For more information about this program or to see if you’re an eligible frontline worker, give me a call at 754-581-3452.
