The Clinton Herald
---- — My husband and I recently decided to pursue buying a home. I happened to stumble on the Iowa Finance Authority website page. How many of you have gone to their website? Would you know what they offer?
I found out just by happenstance and I am so glad! I discovered they do loans and grants for homeowners. We are currently working with ECIA. They are doing a grant program for rehabilitation on our home.
We are getting new siding, windows, insulation, a handicap ramp, handicap accessible bathroom and handicap accessible doors.
We are getting these done due to our circumstances, but I can reassure you that you don’t have to have a disability to qualify. We are working with the First Home Program and First Home Program Plus that offers up to $2,500 down.
They have an eligibility checklist that will help you figure out if you qualify. You would be surprised!
My goal is to spread the word about a fabulous program that Iowa offers. I promise it is worth checking into if you are buying a home soon.
